The Lagos State Government may sanction Arise Television staff, Rufai Oseni over his comment on twitter admitting that he passed the Bus Rapid Transition (BRT) lane on Monday.

On Twitter, Rufai explained that he did so because other vehicles passed and were not stopped.

He said a policeman pointed a gun at him, took his keys, and drove the car off, “because he wanted to enforce a traffic infraction”.

The tweet drew reactions as users labelled him a lawbreaker. But the government critic swiftly rejected the tag.

“I am not a lawbreaker, I saw cars pass through the supposed BRT lane and they were not stopped.

“If I didn’t see other cars I would not go through, plus I wasn’t conversant with the road. I will never deliberately break the law.”

“Rufai, let’s not do this. You admitted to me that you passed a BRT lane. It’s against the law.

“Your claim that google maps took you there is not tenable. You disobeyed and resisted the officers.

“We’ll sanction the officer who misused firearm if proven”, the spokesman assured.

In a tweet, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile said the pundit will be prosecuted.

“Thank you Rufai, while the @PoliceNG deal with the police officer in their own way, we’d ensure that necessary action is taken against you for driving on BRT lane as you’ve admitted to the police.

“You’re a lawbreaker and you should face the necessary penalties”, the media aide added.
