On thursday November 29th, 2012 Governor Fashola did something that you don’t see happen too often. He ordered the arrest of a policeman riding a motorcycle on Lagos/Abeokuta expressway.
The governor had spotted the policeman on the highway when his convoy was passing by. He was quickly arrested by policemen in Fashola’s convoy and put in a van.
In a statement to the press, the governor said that “There is no one above the law in the state. People who are not prepared to obey our laws should leave the state. There is no society where laws are not broken, but the state government would continue to increase its enforcement so that there will be high level of compliance.”
This is a very interesting event, and one that will surely rub people differently.
