Anthony Oke Bus-Stop Is No Longer A Bus-Stop? by aimans: 2:02pm On Mar 23, 2009
Beware Lagos Motorist Anthony Oke Bus Stop Is Not A Bus Stop-says Fashola's Corp

Fellow Lagosians, let me use this medium to inform you that a popular Bus Stop at Anthony village called Anthony Oke is no more a bus stop. This was said by a LASTMA officer & his co-worker (Omage Ewanle with Mopol No: 430584) when a private bus was arrested @ the bus stop in morning of last saturday (21/03/09). The LASTMA officer pulled off his uniform so that he can not be identified while the mopol hided some where in the course  of their arrest. Asking them to justify the arrest, they said "there in no bus stop @ Anthony Oke".

Surprisingly, commercial buses pupolarlly known as Danfo are all stopping to drop & carry passengers without being arrested. It was so obvious that these LASTMA agents have been settled by the Danfo drivers. They later drove the private bus to their office in Oshodi where the driver settled them with "SOMETHING".

On this incident, I would like to ask the following questions:
1. When was Anthony Oke bus stop becomes a place where vehicles are not allowed to stop?
2. Why would LASTMA schedule their arrest to saturday @ the bus stop & not during the week-days, when there will be alots of vehicles to be arrested?
3. Is it allowed within the law that governs LASTMA for its officers to operate without being in uniform?
4. And finally, when are we going to be off from the abitrary use of power?

Eko oni baje o!

I love this that you did. If these corrupt officials are not publicly disgraced they wont stop their misbehavior.
I'm even thinking of creating a website where people will be uploading hidden camera pics or videos of police, mopol and lastma officials collecting bribe.
That will keep them in check a bit.

We can create a special thread for picture posting in the crime section on NL. Lets start from there until we have a dedicated website.

I'm interested o! Big time, infact, I'm compiling a long report on similar issues. Read: http://www.LagosMet.com/blog.

As for pictures, the only problem i have is the hosting of pictures and people linking to it without reference. I use watermarking so that even if you link and use up my bandwidth, I have no problem. If no one volunteers, then I'll dedicate a sub domain, e.g. /reality to this cause.

For videos however, the best places are youtube - facebook - dailymotion - esnips e.t.c.
