On Sunday, June 23, 2024, Benjamin Hundeyin, the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, provided information about how Nollywood actress Laide Bakare paid a N70,000 fine following her arrest for driving in the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

Following the actress’s allegation that she was extorted of the money and that her Toyota Highlander, which had her daughter inside, was seized because she had driven on the BRT lane, Hundeyin disclosed the specifics of his X handle.

She was said to have driven on the BRT lane at Owode Elede along the Ikorodu Road on Friday afternoon and immediately after she was fined, she went to the social media to claim that she was extorted.

However, while giving details about the incident on Sunday, Hundeyin said contrary to her claim, she was actually arrested, fined and she paid the fine before her vehicle was released to her.

Displaying the duplicate of the receipt of the N70,000 fine the actress paid, Hundeyin said she was neither extorted nor assaulted.

He wrote: “You were stopped for contravening traffic laws by driving on the BRT lane. You chose to create a scene. You chose to remain out of your vehicle when it was being taken to LAMATA office.

“The officers were not going to succumb to your gimmick to hold them down at that spot. You rightly paid the correct fine for your offence – N70,000 – into government coffers. You left with the receipt and your vehicle. Not a finger was laid on you.”
