Police Nabs Fake LASTMA Officials

Three fake Air Force men and five fake officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) have been paraded by the police.

Parading the suspects before newsmen in Lagos yesterday, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Umar Manko, said the gang was among many others being used by land speculators to wreck havoc in Lagos.

Manko said the fake LASMTA officials were arrested by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) as they were extorting money from okada operators in the area. The commissioner said suspected land grabbers contract the services of fake uniform men to chase away land owners from their properties, warning that the full weight of the law shall be brought to bear on the suspects.
