The bus driver was accused of boycotting the officials since last week and so they demanded money for the supposed ‘offence.’

The bus conductor disclosed that the LASTMA officials were seeking N100 bribe, and things took a different turn after Fagbuyi took charge of the vehicle and began heading to an unknown location.

It was also reported that the heated argument degenerated into physical combat after the passengers protested.

Mr Oladega assaulted one of the passengers identified as Sandra and also broke her phone screen during the fight.

When Sandra demanded that her phone should be repaired, the officials allegedly threatened to harm her.

According to a Premium Times reporter at the scene, an eyewitness identified only as Sandra said:

“I have been molested and I can’t take it. I was receiving when one of the officials came to drag my phone and threw it on the floor. He broke the screen already. These guys are thugs and should not be accommodated in Lagos.”
