The leadership of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), received in audience at its headquarter office, Oshodi, the leadership of the 9 Brigade Command of the Nigerian Army, led by its Commandant, Brigadier General Adegoke Moses Adetuyi, and both parties agreed to cooperate more than ever before to enhance smooth flow of vehicular traffic, safety and security of commuters and traffic managers in Lagos state.

Mr. Oreagba while receiving the Military personnel, disclosed that it was a great honour receiving the Officials of the Command at Lastma Headquarters at Oshodi.
