It is quite unfortunate that some Lagos motorists did not only forfeit their cars recently but will also watch as the state govt sets to auction all of their vehicles that got seized for violating “One-Way” traffic rule. The special task force in Lagos state has announced that proper arrangements have been made with the court and owners of the forfeited vehicles which are now being put up for auction. The task force is also calling on interested buyers to get ready for this upcoming “Public Auction” that will take place on November 23 at Alausa, Ikeja.

Recent press reports also state that some 43 drivers who were recently arraigned for traffic violations have been ordered by the mobile court to pay huge fines to the Lagos State government. These 43 drivers were reportedly arraigned for traffic offences including road obstruction, plying of dedicated BRT corridors and many more. As of the time of writing this report, the Lagos state task force is still on the lookout for some other traffic offenders who are yet to show up for court trials.
For those doubting this new update, below is a short video showing the forfeited vehicles that the Lagos state govt is set to auction soon.
