The LASTMA officer tried to arrest the couple unlawfully for traffic light offense and ended up getting manhandled
>>> Do you think LASTMA officials could use some retraining to better engage motorists? LASTMA didn't create the law, we enforce it - LASTMA
The annoymous poster user who ploaded the video, which has already gone viral, remarked:
The incident happened at Awolowo way Ikeja this afternoon. The LASTMA stop the Benz for a traffic light but got the beating of his life.
We've had reports of LASTMA officers who have been beaten up by motorists, so this isn't the first time. We want to believe this law enforcement officials are stretching the traffic laws by engaging in the unlawful arrest of motorists. Let us hope there isn't a repeat incident of this treatment of erring LASTMA officials.
