Reports have it that one Ms Yinka Johnson, a female banker with Standard IBTC bank, yesterday knocked down a Lagos State traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) official, 33-year-old Hammed Balogun, who later died as a result of injuries sustained
The General Manager LASTMA, Engr. Babatunde Edu, said the deceased was carrying out his official assignment at his duty post at Mega City, Ajah area of Lagos before he met his untimely death. He said the driver fled the scene after crushing the LASTMA official to death, adding that she was later arrested with the help of the Area J Commander, ACP Felix Vwamhi.
May the soul of Hammed Balogun rest in peace. Here's hoping the suspect is quickly charged to court and gets a fair trial.
I sincerely hope LASTMA officials will curb that habit of suddenly jumping in front of moving vehicles thinking that their uniform will automatically make the car stop. I've come close to killing a couple myself.
