Police arrest Senior journalist at GBC for traffic offense


A senior broadcast journalist with state broadcaster, GBC, Nii Odamtey Lamptey, was Tuesday morning arrested and processed for court for abusing trade plate and putting it in an obscure place.

He was among 24 drivers who were arrested on the Spintex Road as part of Citi TV’s ongoing War Against Indiscipline campaign.

Also among the culprits was a lawyer who said she works at the office of the Attorney-General.

She was caught driving without a license, roadworthy certificate and insurance.

Her car was impounded and taken to the East Legon Police station.

Remarkably, fewer drivers were caught driving on the shoulders of the road, an act that had led to a number of near-fatal road crashes on the Spintex Road.

The few caught were mostly commercial drivers, also known as “trotro” drivers.

The War Against Indiscipline campaign is a Citi TV initiative partnered by an enforcement unit of the Ghana Police Service to rid the country’s roads of undisciplined drivers.

The War Against Indiscipline campaign started by Citi TV in May 2019 to help bring sanity on roads in the country has helped the government to make over GH₵258,000 in fines from errant drivers.
