- A Nigerian man has taken to social media to narrate how he got an allegedly fake tint permit
- According to him, it was given to him at the police headquarters in Lagos
- He further revealed that he paid N15k for the whole process in order to get the document
At an increasing rate which has become quite disturbing, many people have taken to social media to complain about the corruption and injustices meted out on them by the Nigerian police officers. From unjust arrest to extortion, the list only seems endless.
A Nigerian man identified as Stan, has taken to social media to accuse the Nigerian police of issuing fake tint permit. According to the series of post which he made on the Twitter platform, he claims the police headquarters in Lagos issued a fake tint permit to him and even made him pay the sum of N15k for it, as opposed to it being free.
He wrote on Twitter, "I wanted a tinted permit 4 my vehicle. I didn't want a middleman, 2 avoid stories that touch, so I carefully filled the form online myself, printed out a copy, woke up one morning & "carried" myself to @PoliceNG force headquarters in lagos (annex as they call it)
I drove in there and asked for data capturing office. I was directed to an office. a man in that office took the printed copy and asked for my passport photograph, I told him @PoliceNG has explained that we don't need passport for tinted permits but he argued on
he sounded right plus what do I have to lose? I went back to the car and gave him one. he said it's 15k, I was shocked because it's free but I remembered bail is free and paid him. I asked about capturing, he said it's no longer required and asked me to come back in a week
I got his name and phone number, truecaller showed he gave me his supposed name. he also stamped the initial printout i took there for temporary use. i didnt even bother to check it. who needs it in Lagos. i went back after a week and got the document. it looked beautiful. lol
yesterday, I took a road trip to Abuja, with all my vehicle papers intact or so I thought as I passed every road block with a sigh of relief until I hit Benin bypass. haaaaa, I am from edo state & I dread my @PoliceNG brothers from that axis. I stopped as usual and alas
the officer said your tinted permit is fake, we argued on but he was so sure that I began to doubt myself. he asked for the initial printout. I ransacked my car and found it. it was stamped with the IG stamp... . I shook my head and agreed this document is completely fake
@PoliceNG you have a scam going on right inside your headquarters and they are aided by high ranking officers. I won't give more away at this stage. I'll understand if you choose to do nothing because #ThisIsNigeria. I will use Abuja contacts to get a genuine one and we move "
