A Twitter user, Tracy Sylvester, has narrated how some Nigeria Army personnel stopped a white man aided by policeman from breaking traffic law.
The Punch reports that on her Twitter handle, Sylvester, @tracysyl said the incident happened at Egbeda area of Lagos on Sunday, July 22.
NAIJ.com gathered that she said: ”I was at a particular bus stop just before Egbeda, there was mad traffic on one side of the road and the other side was pretty free. Apparently, the person in a black Mercedes GL class couldn’t take it anymore.
"So, as soon as they got to a road cut, a policeman came down from the passenger’s side of the Mercedes, stopped some cars and they diverted to the free road.”
"Their attempt to take one-way met with some resistance, as it wasn’t up to 10 seconds they did that, the Mercedes got blocked by a black Lexus.”
“The furious policeman came down again, went straight to the Lexus, tapped the driver’s window and demonstrated angrily “My friend, will you move to one side?”
Then it happened. A man in his mid 40’s and 3 other men came down from the Lexus and guess what? They were army officers.
The army officers made everyone in the Mercedes come down, that was when we noticed that the owner of the Mercedes was a white man.
He apologised but the soldiers won’t have it and clearly told him “Mr man, If I can obey traffic law in your country, you would obey in mine.”
"Now here’s the funny part. The soldiers cleared the road, apologised for causing traffic and made sure the Mercedes went all the way back to the beginning of the traffic.”

She added: “All the Agberos were cheering. I almost pulled out my phone to record but the army is NOT my mate.”
