A commercial bus driver, Kenneth Anyanwu, who stabbed an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), has been sentenced to one-year imprisonment by a Lagos State Mobile Court sitting in Oshodi.

Anyanwu stabbed Olanrewaju Yusuf with a broken bottle following a disagreement on April 26, 2018.

The disagreement ensued after Yusuf attempted to arrest Anyanwu for picking passengers at undesignated bus stops between Obanikoro and Palm Grove in Lagos.

But Anyanwu resisted arrest, picked up a broken bottle and stabbed Yusuf in the palm.

In his ruling, Magistrate F.O. Ikobayo convicted Anyanwu to one-year imprisonment or a fine of N50,000 after he pleaded guilty to a two-count charge of assault and breach of peace.

The magistrate also ordered the convict to pay N80,000 for Yusuf’s medical bills.
