Arise TV show anchor, Rufai Oseni, has paid N70,000 as fine for committing a traffic infraction in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital.
Platforms Africa reports that the Lagos police command spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, who said this, maintained that the broadcaster has received his car after paying the fine.
Rufai was arrested on Monday for driving on BRT lane in Lagos, a development that set tongues wagging after he alleged police operatives pointed guns at him.
