Motorists Condemns Arrest Over Driver’s License


Some motorists in Lagos on Wednesday condemned the indiscriminate arrest by traffic officials in the state, over alleged possession of fake driver’s license.

Speaking to reporters, some of them noted that it was shocking that even licenses obtained from the offices of the Federal Road Safety Commission are also tagged fake.

A motorist, Mrs Gloria Apata, said she did not know that her license was fake until her car was  impounded for almost two weeks.

According to a senior officer of the VIS, Alausa office, who chose anonymity, many of the motorists do not know that they are in possession of fake driver’s license, noting that many of them most have gotten their former license by proxy from either VIS or FRSC officials, and imagined they were original.
