The Lagos State Government has promised to punish Arise TV presenter Rufai Oseni for using the BRT lane instead of the one designated for it. (BRT).
Gboyega Akosile, the chief press secretary for Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, referred to the television journalist as a lawbreaker and claimed that Rufai had already confessed to the police about his offense.
Rufai would be subject to the appropriate punishment for breaking BRT regulations, he claimed.
According to Akosile’s tweet, Thank you, Rufai. We will make sure that the appropriate legal action is done against you for driving in the BRT lane, as you admitted to the police, while the @PoliceNG handle with the police officer in their own way. You broke the law, and you need to be punished.
On Monday, Rufai claimed in a tweet that a police officer had brandished a gun at him as he attempted to enforce a traffic rule.
He claimed that despite his willingness to pay the fine, the police were adamant about taking my keys by force and brandishing a gun at me.
In order to execute a traffic offense, the Nigerian police officer tweeted, “A Nigerian police officer pointed a gun at me and forcefully took my keys and drove my car off.”
I don’t break the law. I observed vehicles driving past the ostensible BRT lane without stopping. I was abruptly stopped and instructed to utilize the bus lane. I won’t cross if I can’t see any other vehicles since I also want to be familiar with the route. In actuality, three cars also passed after I was stopped, he tweeted.
Rufai’s tweet prompted a response from the Lagos State Command’s Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, who claimed that the journalist had broken traffic laws and defied the police.
He did, however, add that if Oseni’s claim turned out to be accurate, the cop who had pointed a gun at him would face consequences.
We shouldn’t do this, Rufai, remarked Hundeyin. You acknowledged passing a BRT lane to me. It is prohibited by law. Your assertion that Google Maps guided you there is untrue. You fought the cops and disobeyed them. Upon verification, the offending officer will face punishment.
Rufai, however, responded to Akosile in a different tweet by claiming that he did not intend to infringe the law. If other drivers hadn’t been using the BRT lane, he claimed he wouldn’t have passed it.
