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
