The Environmental Sanitation and Special Offenses Task Force of the State of Lagos (Enforcement Unit) reported that it had secured an order to sell 88 seized vehicles from the Lagos State Mobile Court.
The 88 cars were seized in various parts of Lagos State for speeding against the traffic.
The owners of the cars were arraigned before the mobile court, which ordered the forfeiture, according to Shola Jejeloye, the agency’s chairman.
According to Jejeloye, the public auction will take place on Wednesday, January 20, 2021, at the Agency Car Park, Alausa, Ikeja.
He advised drivers of private and commercial buses to give up driving against the light.

“I want to urge motorists, both private and commercial bus drivers, to desist from driving against the traffic, as the penalty is outright forfeiture of such vehicle to the government without any option of fine,” Jejeloye said.
He added that the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed operatives of the agency to continue prosecuting traffic offenders “until sanity is restored to our roads”.
