Akorede Adepoju, a mechanic from Lagos state, Nigeria, has taken to social media to express his displeasure with the recent meetings he had with three different police enforcement agencies in the same day.

When he was accosted and extorted by personnel of the Nigeria Police, VIO, and LASTMA while driving across the state, he posted a message on his WhatsApp status to share his story.

Client @DeGentleman_ sent in a screenshot of his WhatsApp status, which he captioned with the following:

”Lmaoo. My mechanic had encounters with police, lastma and VIO in one day. Came to rant on Whatsapp 😭😭😅”

He revealed that he was initially stopped by a VIO officer in Oyingbo and was interrogated for having a cracked windscreen, which he denied. The official attempted to force him to pay an N40k fine, but after calling the car owner and explaining the situation, he was only allowed to leave when he paid N5k.

As he was about to leave the VIO office, he was pulled over by a police officer who accused him of speeding and accosted him about it. Although he explained his reasoning to her, she was uninterested; nonetheless, he was able to get away when she was engaged in conversation with someone else, and he was able to drive away.

Adding insult to injury, on the same day, he made a withdrawal from an ATM in Alagomeji, and as soon as he got into his car, LASTMA officials surrounded him and threatened to prosecute him for failing to wear a seat belt.
