The Lagos State Government says it arrested and prosecuted at least 219 persons for crossing expressways in different parts of the state in March.

Mr Lukman Ajayi, the spokesperson for Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps, disclosed this to journalists on Tuesday. Ajayi said the persons were arrested at Oshodi, Dopemu, Ikeja, Ikorodu Road, Ketu and Ojota.

He said the arrest of such persons would continue as long as they disobey rules that will save their lives. The spokesperson asked why some persons, including parents, would take children to cross a 10-lane-expressway where there were pedestrian bridges to be used.

Ajayi called on the residents, particularly parents, to advise their wards against crossing the expressways.

He said that the agency would be committed to saving lives by enforcing laws in that regard.
