Man in court for assaulting LASTMA official


A business driver, who is known as Fred Onwuche, who supposedly attacked Razak Kosoko, a Lagos State Traffic Management Agency, LASTMA authority will be charged before the court by Lagos State Government.

Kosoko was allegedly assaulted by Onwuche while he was working at the Lekki zone of the state.

According to a statement by the Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), “the public authority will not hesitate to prosecute to the full extent of the law, refractory drivers and occupants who attack state authorities on assigned obligations.”

He warned further, ”such attacks will no longer be tolerated under any circumstances. The State Government is poised to uphold the rule of law by ensuring that the fundamental right of every resident is protected.”

It will be recalled that last month, a similar incident of assault on a LASTMA Official was recorded and the alleged perpetrator, one Ben Emmanuel was arraigned by the Ministry of Justice, before Yaba Chief Magistrate Court on a two (2) Count Charge of Grievous bodily harm under 245 and Resisting a Public Officer while engaged in the discharge of his Lawful duties under Section 117 (1).
