On Thursday, the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) operatives recovered an automatic pump action gun from an impounded Honda vehicle that was driving against traffic along the Lagos-Epe Expressway in Lagos.

According to the agency’s General Manager, Bolaji Oreba, the car was apprehended while it was driving on Sango-Tedo Road.

According to Oreagba, the officers of the LASTMA were immediately informed about the incident. They were on patrol in the area when it happened.

According to the General Manager “In no time that the owner/driver of the unregistered impounded vehicle (Honda) noticed that the gun (Pump Action) had been sighted inside his car, he immediately took to his heel and was nowhere to be found anymore.

“The unregistered impounded vehicle (Honda car) with the recovered gun had been handed over to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Ilasan Police Station for further investigations.

Oreagba, however, appealed to public members to be security conscious as the year is coming to an end and must ensure that they reported any suspected strange movement within their environment to any nearby security agent of the government.
