Broadcast journalist Rufai Oseni on Monday, August 1 clashed with the police in Lagos for using the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane.

Mr. Oseni tweeted that he did not understand why his vehicle was stopped while three others who also illegally took the BRT lane after him were not stopped.

“I offered to pay for the traffic infraction but the police were hell-bent on forcefully collecting my keys and pointing a gun at me. I saw three other cars drive by the BRT lane and they were not stopped. I am at sea! Why point a gun at me and forcefully collect my key. I am shocked,” he said.

The Arise TV anchor claimed a policeman pointed a gun at him.

“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,” he said.
