A man has been arrested by the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC) with 19 Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards in the Mobolaji Bank Anthony area. 

The arrest was announced by the State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, on Monday, May 27, via his social media handle.
