By TNV

The Special Assistant to the Imo state governor on Lagos Liaison, Hon. Lisa Asugha has joined the Lagos State government in the move to end the practice of hanging on moving train by passengers, while urging well-meaning Imo citizens residing in Lagos to obey the novel bill as being recently passed into law by the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Speaking, the Lagos Liaison officer who stated this at the Imo state Lagos liaison office furthered that the practice was indeed opposite to the image of the state and the nation, and might impede the efforts of the Federal Government in transforming the Rail system.

Also, she disclosed that the Lagos State House of Assembly has involved the Lagos state Commissioner for Transportation, the Management of the Nigerian Railway Corporation and the Nigerian Police to find lasting means of curbing the dangerous trend of passengers hanging on moving trains, adding that it is prone to arrest and prosecution of law offenders.

Asugha, however, expressed worry that the practice has caused several deaths and permanent deformity of individuals who could have contributed to the growth and development of the State and country at large.

While condemning the act, Governor Rochas Okorocha's aide described it as being worrisome, furthering that the trend is a common occurrence and must be discouraged. As she disclosed that efforts must be put in place and enforced to rescue the lives of people indulging in the act.

In another related development, Hon. Lisa Asugha lauded the efforts of Imo citizens for maintaining the late last year's environmental law made by the Lagos state government, stressing that the special offenses mobile court for prosecution of violators has recorded no Imo resident as a violator.
