A commercial bus driver on Monday stripped naked at Palmgrove Bus Stop in Ikorodu Road to prevent officials of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, from towing his vehicle and arresting him for traffic violation.
His stunt drew passers-by’s attention and caused heavy traffic around the area.
The drama started when LASTMA officials parked their vehicle in front of the man’s commercial bus. They accused him of indiscriminate stopping and picking up passengers on the road and ordered all his passengers to alight from the bus.
Initially the driver was pleading to LASTMA not to arrest him but when his impassioned plea continued to fall on deaf ears, he took it further by going naked amidst deep sob.
However, his stunt later worked as LASTMA left him off the hook and drove off.
