Operatives of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps have arrested 63 individuals across various locations for crossing the highway without using the pedestrian bridges and for engaging in street trading.


The state Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, in a via X said offenders were arrested in Oshodi Oke, Ile Epo, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Ajah, among other locations.


According to him, the offenders have been charged to the court for prosecution in line with the State Environmental Sanitation Protection Law 2017.


Recall that in February that the State Government urged residents to make use of pedestrian bridges as it described the crossing of major highways in the state by pedestrians as an offence.
