According to reports, the government of Lagos State have commenced the immediate arrest and prosecution of motorists who buy goods in traffic.


The enforcement was confirmed when officials of the Environmental Sanitation Corps Agency (LASERCORPS) arrested 6 motorists at Ikeja along Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway for allegedly buying goods in traffic. Also four passengers and nine hawkers were arrested during the operation.

On Friday being April 7, 2017. They were accused of breaching the environmental law and brought before a magistrate court, Mr Olayiwola Ogundare Of the Igba Magistrate's Court sentenced them to three months imprisonment each. However, the magistrate gave the accused the option of N10,000 Fine each, adding that the motorists should pay additional N20,000 Fine into the state coffers.

The Head of Public Affairs Unit for LASERCORPS Mr Rahmat Alabi, yesterday said the arrest was in line with the Environmental Sanitation Law 2015. Alabi added that the Corps Marshal of the agency, CSP Bola Jimoh (retd.), stated that LASECORPS was determined to fight the menace of highway hawking.

    2. They've been threatening to stop this since Ambode became governor. But few weeks after the law,traders are back in traffic selling. It'll be hard to get them off completely

    1. You need to reset your brain. If you want to buy gala and lacasera, please kindly enter a shop to do that. Hawking on the road is safe for no one, all sentiments apart. I thought you went to school?

  6. Ambode take time o.
    I understand we need a clean a day fine Lagos.
    I will suggest that instead of stopping this hawking that takes place in the evening, Lagos residents should be warned not to throw dirty like gala wrap and lacasera bottles on the road. When you finish eating and drinking take home with you and empty in your waste bin.

    1. That has been implemented years back, but trust Nigerians to break the rule. Remember when waste baskets were seen in buses and taxis, it didn't work out.

  11. Na wa o!! In the bid to build a mega city, they keep creating unemployment and poverty in the state. And in the end, the Mega is going to be to their advantage... so much for Lagos @50. It's sad...
