It was a mild drama on Sunday when a motorist, Lema Jonathan, who was arrested by officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps confronted them with a fact that their van tyres have expired .
The motorist was stopped and searched by the officials and was arrested and booked for using expired tyres .
The motorist after accepting his charge , pleaded to be allowed to check their van’s tyres to know if they live by example .
The officials reluctantly allowed him to check , having been taught how to discover when tyres are expired .
He however discovered that all the four tyres of the van being used by the officials that arrested him are expired .
He therefore called out the FRSC for allowing its officials using a van with four expired tyres.
Jonathan said “the officials arrested and booked me because my vehicle tyre had expired.
“But when I checked the tyre of their patrol van used, I discovered that four of them were expired.
