“FLASH: Governor of Lagos State, Mr @jidesanwoolu today rolls out the plan to train Lagos State Law Enforcement Agents on the use of Body Worn Cameras under the Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI),” Akosile tweeted.
General manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Olajide Oduyoye, had in February said the officers will use cameras to capture traffic violations.
He had said; “This year, we are going to be having body cameras on officers to capture incidences because things happen so fast.
“You can’t really say let me get my camera. But if you have your body camera on that is recording, then you can capture all sorts of different things that you can use against offenders.
“Those who willfully disobey traffic signs go in the middle of the night to remove those signs. When they are caught, they will say that there were no signs. They go and remove the signs to prove they aren’t aware of the signs. This happens all the time.”
