Lagos State Traffic Management Authourity (LASTMA), has spoken on the fire incident within its premises.
Olajide Oduyoye, the General Manager, reacted in a statement on Saturday.
He explained that the fire started at the abandoned Vehicle Yard and not on LASTMA property.
The GM said “seven dead beat vehicles that had been abandoned and already in preparedness for disposal for years by crushing or other means got burnt.”
He added that the cause of the fire is still unknown but that the Lagos Fire Service responded promptly, put out the fire and mitigated further spread or damage to property.
The GM averred that as confirmed by the Lagos State Emergency Agency (LASEMA), no injury or damage to any LASTMA property was recorded.
Oduyoye assured the public, especially those whose vehicles were apprehended for traffic offences in the Oshodi yard, not to entertain any fear.
