Nigeria: LASTMA Officer Shot Dead By Suspected F-SARS Officer

An official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, identified as Rotimi Adeyemo, was shot dead in the Iyana-Ipaja area of Alimosho Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday.

PUNCH Metro gathered that Adeyemo, while controlling traffic at the Iyana-Ipaja roundabout, stopped a motorist, who was alleged to be an operative of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, for violating a traffic rule, but the motorist, who was apparently annoyed by the action of the LASTMA official, allegedly brought out a gun from his vehicle and shot the official dead.

An eyewitness, Uwem Okon, told PUNCH Metro that the motorist, who drove a Toyota Highlander SUV, brought out a gun and shot the traffic official, who had asked him to stop for violating the rule.

Okon added that onlookers first retreated after the motorist shot the LASTMA official, but later regrouped as the motorist was trying to make a quick escape and seized him.

Okon stated, “There was a heavy traffic at the Iyana-Ipaja roundabout around 6:23pm. The LATSMA official was busy controlling vehicles in order to ease the traffic when he discovered that a motorist had violated a traffic rule. So, he stopped to caution the motorist, but the motorist suddenly brought out a gun and shot him on the head. The official died on the spot.
