The management of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has frowned at the use of its uniforms and paraphernalia by movie producers and content creators.
The agency said it will not hesitate to prosecute film makers and producers over unauthorised use of its uniforms and kits in films.
Recall that the Nigeria Police Force had also warned film makers to refrain from unauthorised use of its uniform and kits.
General Manager of LASTMA, Bolaji Oreagba, yesterday expressed disdain at the manner in which movie and skit makers portray LASTMA institution, using their uniforms without recourse to constituted authority.
Section 79 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015 criminalises the unauthorised use of LASTMA uniforms and kits.
Oreagba gave the warning after seeing a fully kitted actress with LASTMA uniform in a Yoruba film titled ‘Gbogbo Lowo’ and other skits on different social media
