Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday issued a strong warning to those bent on attacking law enforcement agents, saying harsh punishment awaits them.
The governor gave the warning on Monday at the residence of the late Ola Ganiyu Oyeshina, the slain officer of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), who died last Saturday after he was attacked by two trailer drivers in Sifax, Iganmu area of Apapa.
The late Oyeshina, 33, hailed from Osun State and was said to be an orphan.
Sanwo-Olu led a delegation comprising his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, and members of the State Executive Council, on a condolence visit to the late Oyeshina’s family house on Oni Street in Surulere.
The governor described the attack on the LASTMA officer as “mindless and callous”, saying the government would “thoroughly prosecute” the arrested culprits to send a clear signal to those taking penchant in attacking law enforcement agents in the line of duty.
