The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has dismissed 24 of its personnel in the past two years over misconduct.
The authority has also lost about 10 personnel, while some others suffered injuries with some resulting in amputation in the course of carrying out their lawful duties.
The Chief Executive Officer of the authority, Christian Olakpe, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
Mr Olakpe said that LASTMA also punished erring officers and men in some other ways including suspension, rank reduction and isolation.
“There are various avenues we use to checkmate the misconducts of officials on duty,” Olakpe said.
He told NAN that LASTMA had received numerous complaints against its officers.
“We initiated LASTMA Response Unit to carry out investigations on such complaints.
“The Provost Unit was also created to mete out punishment on any of them found guilty.
“We have dismissed 24 personnel in the last two years as a result of corruption, abuse of office, extortion, impropriety and other misconducts.
“Eagle’s eye is on officers on duty to ensure zero tolerance to corruption,” he said.
