The management of LASTMA has warned filmmakers and skit creators against using their uniforms and kits without approval.
Bolaji Oreagba, the General Manager of LASTMA, expressed concern over the way the organization has been portrayed in movies and skits, saying that offenders will be arrested and prosecuted in accordance with the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.
