Lemi Jonathan, a native of Enugu State has faulted officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) for booking him for an expired tyre offence even when the four tyres of their patrol van have also expired.
Jonathan on his Facebook page two days ago wrote and posted photos of the FRSC van below:
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???
