Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has warned landlords and various Community Development Associations (CDAs) to desist from closing street gates, saying that any gate found locked would be pulled down.

Recall that the state had urged residents to comply with government regulations directing that all interlink roads must be accessible on a daily basis across the state.

The General Manager of LASTMA, Mr Bakare Oki Olalekan, said failure to comply with the directive would attract the wrath of the law, adding that the street gates posed a serious security threat to the areas as against the intention of those behind it.

According to him, the policy on street gates was meant to enable easy access for security operatives and those on essential duties, adding that “traffic officers have been facing serious challenges in diverting motorists to alternative routes through nearby streets because these streets are gated.”

The general manager stressed that the illegal closure of gates, some of which act as feeder roads to connect highways, also contributes to the activities of criminally-minded individuals who, he said,  indulged in dispossessing residents of their belongings.
