Army Fines Traffic Offenders

The General Officer Commanding, 81 Division, Maj. Gen. Kenneth Minimah, has said Colonel K.I Yusuf and Staff Sergeant Adeomi, who were accosted by Governor Babatunde Fashola for taking the designated Bus Rapid Transit lane on July 17, 2012, will pay the mandatory fine. The fine for taking BRT lane is N25, 000.
This is just as the Nigerian Army began the court martial of 11 soldiers for various offences in Lagos on Tuesday. Minimah said at a press briefing that the Nigerian Army was not above the law.
“They passed the BRT lane and it’s a traffic offence and they’ll pay the fine. The fact that he has apologised to the governor does not mean that he won’t face the law. He will pay the fine,” he said

Ghanaian President, Atta Mills, Passes On

Ghanaian  President, John  Mills, died on Tuesday, few hours after announcing to Parliament that he was leaving for Nigeria.
The British Broadcasting Corporation reports that 68-year-old Mills,  who had been suffering from throat cancer,  died in  the capital, Accra a few hours after being taken ill.

Hmmmmm........ He died in his home country, and his death was announced a few minutes after it happened. I'm sure the case would have been completely different in Nigeria. God help this country!!!!!!

Nobody is above the law. I can imagine Governor Fashola's anger here- the state governor chose to join the traffic without making any noise while someone who considers himself untouchable violated the traffic law by driving on the BRT lane.
Apart from the fine and embarrassment, I'm sure the Nigerian Army will still deal with the officer. Ouch!
