A bus driver has been prosecuted for stripping himself naked and smearing officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority with faeces to prevent the seizure of his vehicle.

The LASTMA spokesperson, Olumide Filade, said the suspect was arrested on July 4 and arraigned before a magistrate’s court.

He noted that the driver was remanded till August 2022. Filani stated this in reaction to a video of the driver which went viral on Wednesday.

The General Manager of LASTMA, Bolaji Oreagba, stated that the incident happened in March 2022 in the Maryland area of the state.

The LASTMA’s spokesperson, Filade, said the vehicle was impounded on July 4, 2022.

“The driver has been arraigned at a magistrate’s court, where he was asked to be remanded at the Potoki Custodial Centre until August when his case would come up again.

“This only goes to show that the law will not spare any violator, however unruly you are. All LASTMA is advocating is voluntary compliance,” he added.
