Posted by Samuel on Fri 22nd Dec, 2023 -

The team, was led by LASTMA General Manager, Mr. Olalekan Bakare-Oki, and Director Operations, Mr Peter Gbejemede.


In a midnight operation, the Lagos State Government enforcement team, led by the Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), seized more than 60 unlawfully parked containerized trucks along Cele, Mile-2, Apapa Oshodi Expressway, heading towards the port access road.

The team, was led by LASTMA General Manager, Mr. Olalekan Bakare-Oki, and Director Operations, Mr Peter Gbejemede.

Peter stated that the opeartion in conjunction with relevant security agencies, was to ensure seamless traffic for motorists and residents during and after the festive period.

This is coming following several reports by Vanguard over the illegal activities of truckers and tanker drivers despite the state governor, Bababjide Sanwo-Olu’s directive to vacate and desist from indiscriminate parking in the axis and environ.

Recall that the team also carried out a similar operation last week, where over 78 illegally parked trucks were impounded on the top bridge by Lilly Pond, inward Apapa Port, and the Sifax axis of Ijora-Olopa.

The latest exercise, Vanguard gathered, commenced in the early hours of Friday between midnight and about 6 a.m.

The enforcement team evacuated and cleared the road of illegally parked trucks and impediments around Second Rainbow, Mile 2, up to the Coconut-inward Tin-Can Island Port access road.

Oki, while commenting on the exercise, said it would be sustained to restore sanity in the area.

According to the newly appointed LASTMA GM, “The enforcement operations will be continuous with zero tolerance to rid off indiscriminate parking and impediments along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway, and environs to restore permanent road sanity in the axis.

While warning recalcitrant truckers to desist forthwith from illegal parking along the axis, Oki urged motorists to take possession of the road and not hesitate to inform LASTMA of any broken down or abandoned trailer/truck via the agency hotlines: 08100565860, 08129928490, 08129928515, and 0812992859 for immediate and necessary actions.
