Buy, sell on traffic in Lagos, face six months jail

The Lagos State government has said that both buyers and sellers on traffic may be heading to jail, reports ITRealms.

The state governor, Mr. Akin Ambode, while speaking on Television Continental (TV-C) monitored in Lagos, Friday, said that the laws on Street Trading in Lagos State will be strictly enforced from  July 1, 2016.

“_Both Seller and Buyer are equally guilty and the penalty is N90,000 or 6 months imprisonment or both. Please note and abstain from buying from Street Hawkers,” he said.

The strict implementation of this law was not unconnected to the fracas that took place on Wednesday at Maryland, Lagos following the killing of hawker in effort to cross the Ikorodu-Ikeja-Ojota Road, which resulted in shattering of a Lagos State Government Bus (LAGBUS) which left some Lagosians injured.
