Traffic offenders crumbled to their knees, while some broke down in tears during an auction of vehicles forfeited to the Lagos state government over traffic violations.

At the auction of forfeited and abandoned vehicles that took place on Thursday at the task force yard in Ikeja, bidders stormed the venue to register, inspect, and bid for different vehicles, including minibusses and cars.

The event venue, which had participants as in a live football match, turned into an arena of tears and sympathy as motorists faced the reality of permanently losing their vehicles.
