Following our review of  an audio recording in circulation which claims that LASAA  has instructed billboard owners in Lagos to reject any  outdoor political  campaign from opposition parties. 

An audio on social media insinuated that LASAA will punish any practitioner found displaying other opposing political parties in Lagos State.
