An official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA has been captured on tape in a daring action-film style dramatic scene.
In a video making rounds on social media, the officer could be seen hanging on firmly to the truck while the drive tried to shake him off.
The motorists that recorded the footage were heard asking if clinging to a moving truck is part of the traffic official’s job description.
This was said just before the LASTMA official eventually fell off the moving truck and was seen rolling on the floor.
Nigerians on social media were swift to react and condemn the LASTMA officer’s actions.

@TosinFayanju; They take people with good heart for granted. Drive fast and match break. General hospital will treat him on Lagos state acct
@OlaminiyiB; This country has turned me into a monster, because, how the hell am I thinking the driver gave him a safe landing!?
