Oseni Rufai, the Arise Television presenter, who was accused of driving on BRT lane on Lagos highway has apologized.
Rufai was said to have resisted arrest by policemen and was later made to appear in a Lagos mobile court on Tuesday where he was asked to pay a fine of N70,000.
Now, Rufai has apologized to all parties involved in the incident adding that it has been a humbling experience for him.
The journalist made the apology during a live broadcast show on Arise News TV on Wednesday morning.
Rufai said: “I have to read the personal message I did. As many of you know in the last two days I have been in the news for the wrong reasons. This has resulted in needless distraction for my friends, family, members of the public and for all my colleagues on Arise News.
“I like to apologize to all parties over what transpired during the incident with the police when I was stopped while driving BRT bus lane. I dare not lay claims to know it all. Lessons have been learned from this entire episode. This has been a really humbling experience for me.
“I like to use this opportunity to express my gratitude to all those who have reached out to me in the last two days for their guidance and counselling. Thank you, everyone. God bless you all and please let’s continue to strive to make our country a better place for all. I apologise.”
