The Lagos State government has arrested 10 fake enforcement personnel at the Cele/Itire axis of the state.

Olawale Musa, permanent secretary of the Ministry of transportation, who spoke to journalists, said the arrests were made in response to complaints registered at the ministry by concerned citizens.

Musa said the suspects were not members of staff of the ministry, adding that they would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
