The Arise Television presenter, Oseni Rufai, who was accused of driving on a BRT lane in Lagos has appeared before a mobile court.
Naija News recalls that a video of the TV presenter telling the security operatives who had seized his vehicle that he would call the governor and report their actions had surfaced online.
Oseni later posted a video to share his side of the story. He explained that he owned up to what he did and was ready to pay the fine.
However, he said that the officers forcefully took his car and pointed a gun at him. Hence, the reason for his outburst.
Shedding more light on the incident, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin disclosed via Twitter that Oseni appeared before a mobile Lagos court on Tuesday and was accused of contravening Lagos State Transport Law of 2018.
The court found him guilty of driving on the BRT lane in contravention of the law and was fined the sum of N70,000 and after he made the payment, his vehicle was released to him.
He wrote: “Mr Rufai Oseni was in court earlier today. He was found guilty of contravening Lagos State Transport Law (2018). He was subsequently fined Seventy Thousand Naira Only. He made the payment, after which his vehicle was released to him.”
