The incident happened when the victim was trying to effect the arrest of an O-Pay rider who drove on the BRT lane in Ojota.

Adebisi was taking the confiscated motorcycle to LASTMA office at Oshodi when the primero bus hit him at Idi-Iroko axis of Ikorodu Road.

The officer was unconscious momentarily after the impact, while the bus driver sped off. Passersby rushed the officer to the LASTMA clinic before he was referred to the General Hospital in Isolo.

This incident preceded another violent episode against a LASTMA officer, Ola Oyeshina, who died in the early hours of Saturday after two trailer drivers attacked him in Iganmu-Sifax area of Apapa.

Meanwhile, Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Transportation, Mr. Toyin Fayinka condemned the attacks on the LASTMA officers, describing them as “dastardly acts”.
