And he, right away, put his hand inside to unlock the car door. I wanted to move, but the traffic from Bolade junction was not yielding.“He aggressively commanded me to turn left into the local government headquarter,” Amusat said in the viral post.Continuing, he said, “Knowing that I’ve done nothing wrong, I complied. We entered the (council) gate and was promptly surrounded by rough-looking council men in their yellow uniform branded (with the inscription) Road Enforcement.”Amusat said he was accused of making a phone call and causing obstruction  in a traffic jam.The distraught man said he thought it was a joke, until a ticket of N25,000 was issued to him for the alleged offence,while the council officials also attempted to deflate his vehicle’s tyres.Amusat narrated that so manyvehicles were “under arrest,” with the owners arguing and protesting the illegal operation.“I stepped out to make a few calls to friends, only to be approached by one of their leaders who asked me to cooperate because I looked like a gentleman,” Amusat said.In a chat with our Correspondent, Amusat disclosed that he placed a callto a Colonel friend of his at an Army Cantonment in Lagos, and that the conversation made the council officials to soft-pedal.Continuing, he said, “I told himI will rather pay whatever fine to government coffer and he directed me to a kiosk where I was asked to pay whatever I had on me.
