Lagos: Sanwo-Olu Swears In New Chief Judge

The Lagos State Government has said traffic offenders will now be tried by a special court, according to the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu noted this on Sunday at an interdenominational thanksgiving Service organised by the Lagos chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) at the Deeper Life Bible Church Headquarters in Gbagada.

According to him, the special courts would be created soon as convicts will be punished f found guilty at the point of contravention.

“We want the people to obey Lagos traffic law. We want them to understand that they are not the only road users who have right of way,” he said.

“If you want my government to finish well, don’t drive against the traffic.

“We are working with the Acting Chief Judge of the state to set up special mobile courts that will dispense judgment on traffic offences.

“Any offender would be made to serve the punishment immediately, which could be in the form of compulsory community service. We are declaring zero tolerance for disobedience to traffic rules.”
