Tragic: LASTMA Officer Slumps And Dies While At His Duty Post

LASTMA Official Collapses BellaNaija

Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) official slumped and subsequently died on Saturday, while controlling traffic on Ishaga Road in the Idi-Araba, Mushin area of Lagos.

According to Punch, the deceased, Kazeem Lawal, was rushed to Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) when he collapsed. However, no one attended to him because of the ongoing strike action. He was then rushed to the Randle Hospital where he was confirmed dead.
According to one of Lawal’s colleagues:
“We do not have any insurance policy. We do not have any hazard allowance. It is very painful.
His family members are in disarray at present. We work round the clock, and we are usually overwhelmed. He must have collapsed from accumulated stress.
Since the government sacked some LASTMA workers last year, there has been a burden on the workforce. Work posts, where seven personnel were handling, have been reduced to one or two.”
The whole thing happened so fast and so shocking. By the time they took him to the Randle Hospital, he had died.”
