Oduyoye further said that seven dead beat vehicles that had been abandoned and already in preparedness for disposal for years by crushing or other means got burnt, while he added that the cause of the fire is still unknown but that the Lagos State Fire Service responded promptly, put out the fire, and mitigated further spread or damage to property.

Oduyoye averred that as confirmed by the Lagos State Emergency Agency (LASEMA), no injury or damage to any LASTMA property was recorded.

He assured the public, especially those whose vehicles were apprehended for traffic offences in the Oshodi Yard, not to entertain any fear while LASTMA continues to be responsible and responsive to maintaining the free flow of traffic in Lagos State.Screenshot_20200815-112500
