By Monsurudeen Olowoopejo

The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has recovered a pump action gun inside an unregistered Honda Sports Unitility Vehicle (SUV) impounded for driving against traffic in the state.

LASTMA officials impounded the vehicle driving against traffic around Sango-Tedo inward Abijo G.R.A along Lekki-Epe Expressway.

The General Manager, LASTMA, Bolaji Oreagba, who confirmed the recovery, disclosed that the impounded unregistered vehicle (Black Honda) was found contravening the traffic law along the road.
Oreagba disclosed further that Policemen attached to LASTMA officers on routine patrol around Lagos-Epe Expressway were immediately alerted about the incident for confirmation.
According to the General Manager “In no time that the owner/driver of the unregistered impounded vehicle (Honda) noticed that the gun (Pump Action) had been sighted inside his car he immediately took to his heel and was nowhere to be found anymore”
“The unregistered impounded vehicle (Honda car) with the recovered gun had been handed over to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Ilasan Police Station for further investigations.
Oreagba, however, in a statement released by the Director, Public Affairs Department LASTMA, Taofiq Adebayo, appealed to members of the public to be security conscious as the year is coming to an end and must ensure that they reported any suspected strange movement within their environment to any nearby security agent of government.
