Rufai Oseni, the host of the Arise TV show, was fined 70,000 for breaking a Lagos traffic law.
He was taken into custody on Monday in Lagos for using the BRT lane, which raised eyebrows because he claimed that police officers had pointed weapons at him.
However, Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesman for the Lagos police command, offered updates on the case on Tuesday.
Hundeyin said: “Mr Rufai Oseni was in court earlier today. He was found guilty of contravening Lagos State Transport Law (2018). He was subsequently fined Seventy Thousand Naira Only. He made the payment, after which his vehicle was released to him.”
