Lagos State Task Force on Environment and Special Offences Unit has arrested six people allegedly impersonating Lagos State Traffic Management Authority and the task force officials as well as extorting money from unsuspecting motorists and residents

‎Task force Chairman, CSP Bayo Sulaimon, said the fake LASTMA and task force officials were nabbed in Lagos Mainland after they had swindled hundreds of unsuspecting motorists and residents in the state.

According to Sulaimon the fake LASTMA officials arrested, charged and issued forged receipts to unsuspecting motorists and other traffic offenders.

He said, “We got the information about the people who have been parading themselves as the taskforce of a local government. They have even gone as far as printing fake stickers and copies of the traffic law which they use to threaten unsuspecting motorists.

When they arrest you, they will claim they are task force officials. On getting the information, I moved my men there and we caught them red-handed.” he concluded.
