A Nigerian Man has narrated a recent experience he’s had with officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps.
According to Lemi Jonathan, he was booked for using ONE expired tyre but on close inspection, he discovered that the Vehicle that the FRSC officials used themselves had all four tyres expired.
The man took to Facebook to write ;
I encountered Road Safety personnel today from Afikpo Command. They stopped our vehicles and charged the second car with me with an expired Tyre offense.
I acknowledged the fact that the Tyre they saw is above years, but all my pleas fell on deaf ears. I got angry at their adamant attitude….. They still booked us for the offense.
Then I looked at the tyres of their vehicle and saw that their tyres were all expired. I asked their driver how long should a Tyre stay before it expires, he said 4 years.
I asked him if he is aware that their tyres are all expired, he said he is aware but that they have written to their Command for over a year now but they refused to change the tyres but still asked them to manage it.
How could they be charging me for the same offense they are massively committing? Mine was a Tyre, theirs were all tyres….. He said immunity covers them.
How can this be right???
