Arise TV anchor Rufai Oseni has apologised for a traffic infraction in Lagos on Monday.
Oseni was arrested for driving in the BRT lane, a development that generated massive reactions on social media after he alleged police operatives pointed a gun at him.
A video appeared where he was seen charging at a police officer, saying ”I will call the Governor, nonsense.”
He was fined N70,000 for the offence after appearing on Tuesday in court, according to Lagos police spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin.
A sober Oseni made the apology during a live broadcast show on Arise News TV yesterday morning.
He said: “I like to apologise to all parties over what transpired during the incident with the police when I was stopped while driving on a bus lane. I dare not lay claim to know it all. Lessons have been learnt from this entire episode. This has been a really humbling experience for me.”
