A official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Mr. Kosoko Razak was attacked with a pestle by a commercial driver identified as Fred Onwuche.
The attack at Jakande in Lekki, Lagos State left the LASTMA official with serious Injuries on his head and bloodstains.
The incident was confirmed in a statement issued by the General Manager, LASTMA, Mr. Olajide Oduyoye.
According to him, Onwuche was stopped and arrested for not using a seat belt while driving which resulted in a vicious attack on the officer with a pestle.
“The brutish attack on the officer by the suspect is totally condemnable and uncalled for.
The way and manner it was carried out, it was like a premeditated attempt to kill the officer. We must, therefore, send a strong signal to others like the attacker by ensuring that the culprit is punished to the full extent of the law.”
“The law must go full circle in this case. There should be no shifting of ground or out-of-court settlement of this matter that could have thrown the Agency, colleagues and the family of Mr. Razak into mourning, if not for divine intervention.”
Rasaq was quickly rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment and stitching of the deep cuts on his head. Onwuche was arrested and taken to Ilasan Police Division for further investigation and prosecution.
