Arrest me if I violate traffic, Oshiomhole tells agency
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has charged men of the state Traffic Management Agency (ESTMA) to stop and arrest him or the state deputy governor if their vehicles beat traffic, saying no one is too big to contravene laws in the state.
Speaking during a meeting with officers and men of the agency, Oshiomhole urged them to be firm but civil in carrying out their duties.
“You must not extort, you must not criminalise innocent people, you must not let offenders go after extortion, if anybody beats the red light, you must arrest the person no matter his status. If it’s the governor or deputy governor, you must block him and interrogate him. The only person exempted from the red light rule is the president or deputy president when they visit, in which case the road will be blocked for their easy passage,” he said.
