The Lagos State Task Force has arrested three men for parading themselves as transport enforcement personnel.
The arrest was carried out in collaboration with the Transport Operations Compliance Unit of the state Ministry of Transportation in the Agege area of the state.
The suspects were nabbed as part of measures by the state to sanitise the transport sector of individuals parading themselves as government enforcement personnel.
The three men identified as; Olayinka Daniel, Shola Babarinde and Ilesanmi, were reported by a motorist who claimed they had forcefully gained access to his vehicle and accused him of not having a Stage Carriage Permit.
The motorist also claimed he was asked to pay N15,500, despite having other vehicle documents.
The fake enforcement personnel also confessed to selling unauthorised Local Government Emblems to vehicle operators in the area under the supervision of one “Mr. Tunji” who lives around Oniwaya axis in Agege area.
