The Lagos State Government (LASG) has vowed to prosecute those crossing the major highways in the state instead of using the pedestrian bridges.

The Herald reports that Tokunbo Wahab, state Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, made the annoucement via his X handle on Sunday.

Wahab said a marching order had been given to environmental law officials in the state to enforce the law against crossing the major highways on foot.

"Crossing the highway is an offence in Lagos State. Lagos State Government has given a marching order to the #LAGESCOfficial (KAI) Marshall and other law enforcement officials to arrest anyone crossing the highway and then charge them to court immediately.

"Please, use the pedestrian bridges across the state."
