Primewave.ng had earlier reported that there was a face-off between an Arise TV journalist and some police officers.
The journalist was captured on video telling the police officers that he would call the governor of Lagos state on them after he was caught violating the BRT law in the state.
Oseni Rufai in a series of tweets said he offered to pay a fine for the BRT infraction as he noted that he would never deliberately break the law.
