LASTMA Official Dies In Active Service

Mr Kazeem Lawal of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) was controlling traffic on Ishaga Road in the Idi-Araba, Mushin area on Saturday, when he slumped, was rushed to the hospital and passed away in transit.

He was said to have been brought lifeless to the Randle Hospital in Surulere, Lagos.

There is no word yet from the hospital on whether he was nursing an ailment.

The Punch quotes a colleague of Lawal as saying that LASTMA personnel operate without an insurance cover.

He said, “Lawal was initially taken to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, but he could not be attended to because of the ongoing strike action. He was then rushed to the Randle Hospital where he was confirmed dead.

“We do not have any insurance policy. We do not have any hazard allowance. It is very painful.

“His family members are in disarray at present. We work round the clock, and we are usually overwhelmed. He must have collapsed from accumulated stress.

“Since the government sacked some LASTMA workers last year, there has been a burden on the workforce. Work posts, where seven personnel were handling, have been reduced to one or two.”
