Sanwo-Olu issued this warning while signing his first executive order in the presence of security chiefs and top echelon of the State Traffic Management Authority among others.

The governor who noted with concern the indiscriminate dumping of refuse, however, cautioned officers of the State environmental enforcement unit against making arrest but instead be courteous.

He said, “Environmental offenders are not meant to be arrested, but communicate with them; the one that we need to reprimand, let us reprimand, the ones we need to advise, let us advise. The people that need to be reformed, reform them.”
