Rufai is a lawbreaker, according to the Lagos State Governor’s Chief Press Secretary. What took place on Monday, August 1, 2022, Rufai claimed in a tweet that a police officer had pointed a gun at him while trying to enforce a traffic ticket. The cops, he claimed, were “hell-bent on forcefully seizing my keys and brandishing a revolver at me,” despite his offer to pay for the infringement.
He wrote on Twitter that a Nigerian police officer had pulled a gun at him, grabbed his keys by force, and driven away with his car to enforce a traffic penalty.
In response to Rufai’s tweet, Gboyega Akosile, Chief Press Secretary to Lagos State Governor, called the broadcast journalist a lawbreaker and said that Rufai had previously admitted to breaking the law. Rufai would be subject to the necessary punishment, he added.
In a follow-up tweet, Rufai clarified that he hadn’t intend to infringe the law. If other drivers hadn’t been using the BRT lane, he claimed he wouldn’t have passed it.
“I am not breaking the law; I observed vehicles driving through the pretended BRT lane while I was suddenly stopped and informed that I had been using the bus lane. I wouldn’t pass if I didn’t see any other cars, and I also want to be familiar with the road. In fact, three cars were also stopped after I was “He tweeted “,”
Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos State Command’s Public Relations Officer, responded to Rufai’s tweet by saying the journalist had broken the law while defying the regulations. He did, however, clarify that if Rufai Oseni’s claim is accurate, the cop who pointed a gun at him will face the consequences.
