COLONEL FINED FOR PASSING BRT...

Finally, we are living a civil life in Nigeria as no one should be above the law...Colonel Kayode Yusuf and Sergeant Aliu Adeomi, who were arrested last Tuesday by the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola for driving on the BRT lane have been fined.

Both officers have been asked to pay N25, 000.00 each as fine.
General Kenneth Minimah, the general officer commanding 81 division, gave the order while addressing the court marital established to discipline 13 army personnel for their misconducts.

He added that the action of the two officers arrested by Mr Fashola was against the Lagos State traffic law and regardless of their apology to the governor, they will still pay the N25,000 fine.
General Minimah said that the fine would serve as a deterrent to others, charging other soldiers to obey the laws of the state, including taking the BRT lane.
