Popular TV broadcaster, Rufai Oseni, has been fined the sum of #70,000 for committing a traffic infraction

Popular TV broadcaster, Rufai Oseni, has been fined the sum of ?70,000 for committing a traffic infraction in Lagos.

The Lagos State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, made this known in an update released on Tuesday.

The Arise TV presenter had earlier trended on social media after he claimed that a policeman pointed a gun at him for driving on a dedicated Bus Rapid Transit lane.

In his update, Hundeyin said, “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.”

Rufai tweeted on Monday, “A Nigerian police officer pointed a gun at me and forcefully took my keys and drove my car off, because he wanted to enforce a traffic infraction.”

Hundeyin in his response had said, “Rufai, let’s not do this. You admitted to me that you passed a BRT lane. It’s against the law.

“Your claim that google maps took you there is not tenable. You disobeyed and resisted the officers. We’ll sanction the officer who misused firearm if proven.”

However, in a video that trended on Twitter on Tuesday, Oseni was directing insults at the policemen. He went to his car, then returned to the policemen in their vehicle and said, “I will call the governor…nonsense.”
