The Nigerian Army have asked both officers, Colonel Kayode Yusuf and Sergeant Aliu Adeomi, to pay N25, 000.00 each as fine. Yusuf drove in an army green Peugeot 406 with registration number BO1 – 150 NA while Adeomi was in a black Toyota Camry.

The GOC 81 Division, General Kenneth Minimah gave the order for them to pay the fine. He went ahead to say 

“No military personnel is above the law,” the Army General said.

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.

“No army personnel should take the BRT lane because they are designated for buses, if we get it right it is for our common good.’’

He said the law was meant for Lagos residents, and the military should help Lagosians to abide by the law.

“In this regard, we will continue to help the State Government in enforcing the law.’’
