The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has announced the arrest of over 100 vehicles that violated the social distancing order of the state government to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Recall that the Lagos State Government consequently issued new transport operational guidelines which included observance of social distance in vehicles, compulsory use of face masks and others to prevent the spread of the virus.
