A Nigerian woman, Larry Mesh, has cried out over an alleged exploitation she faced in the hands of a LASTMA official who claimed she had a miscarriage because of him.
Mesh expressed that she was asked to go to the station with the official, Suenu Adejoke, after she drove on a one-way road.
She explained that she had no idea that the road was a one way road because there was nothing to indicate it and she saw people driving the same way she did.
According to Mesh, the official forced her way into her car and started dragging the steering with her driver, George. The officer later claimed that she was assaulted by George which resulted to a miscarriage.
Mesh further added that she and her driver were taken to area F police station where the official allegedly demanded N150k.
