About 483 motorcycles impounded for traffic offences in Lagos were on Saturday crushed by the Lagos State Police Command.
They were destroyed at the Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja.
The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, stated that the crushing exercise was to convince the public that the impounded motorcycles are actually being crushed contrary to insinuations by mischief makers that the motorbikes are being sold and recycled.
Odumosu warned erring motorcycle operators plying restricted areas and those violating other traffic laws to change or be ready to face the legal consequences.
The police boss assured that the crushing exercise will be a continuous one to discourage people from trampling upon the law, and reiterated the determination of the Police Command to enforce the law.
