The Deputy General Manager of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Comptroller Isaac Adetimiro has disclosed that the management of the agency has intensified efforts at monitoring and sanctioning errant officers owing to numerous complaints.

Speaking on several complaints received from the public, Adetimiro stated that the Agency has completed preliminary investigations on three out of 20 LASTMA officers accused of extortion and high handedness.

He explained further that the officers are awaiting further sanctions through the setting up of a disciplinary committee known as Personnel Management Board (PMB) to adjudicate their cases in line with the Public Service Rules, saying the cases of the remaining 17 officers accused of other misdemeanours are still under investigation.

While assuring Lagosians that no guilty officer will go unpunished by the agency, the DGM declared that the majority of LASTMA officers are diligent and upright in the discharge of their duties while the bad eggs tarnishing the image of the agency will be identified and punished.

“We will continue to look out for officers involved in any misdemeanour by increasing our monitoring and surveillance on officers at their duty posts to ensure they are civil to the populace as well as eschew corruption in the discharge of their duties”, Adetimiro stated.

The DGM also used the opportunity to implore all road users in the State to change their attitudes and obey traffic regulations at all times in order to avoid incessant traffic gridlock being experienced on across the metropolis.

Adetimiro, however, solicited for the support of all motorists and urged them to call any of the following numbers 08129928503, 08129928469, 08129928490 and 08129928550 for complaints and enquiries.
