TWO military officers who drove on the dedicated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane were yesterday arrested by Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola who expressed anger that those who should show the highest form of discipline and professionalism were the ones violating the law.
The duo accosted on the BRT lane at the Outer Marina in Central Lagos are Colonel Ki Yusuf who drove in an green official Peugeot 406 sedan with registration Number BO1 – 150 NA and Staff Sergeant Adeomi A.J. in a black Toyota Camry.
A statement by Hakeem Bello, Special Adviser on Media to Fashola, said: “Realizing that the game was up, Colonel Yusuf came down from his car, saluted and kept muttering, ‘I am sorry, very, very sorry,’ with the governor enquiring why, as a senior military officer, he chose to break the law instead of preserving it.
Fashola said he had already made a representation to the superiors of the culprits expressing optimism that they would be sanctioned appropriately.
