They Proved Smartness But Nigeria Police Out Smart Them: Our Ugly Experience by ify2016: 11:35am On Oct 02, 2016
If there is anything God will judge first; it should be Nigeria police men on the high way. Haba! Imagine this morning as we were driving from Lagos down to PH to partake in one family event which is scheduled to hold by 4pm today. A team of arm robbers popularly called Nigeria Police stopped us along Bayelsa demanding for a normal high way check. After parking our SUV car, we were told to show our particulars, which we gladly showed them. Having been briefed about embarrassment inherit by Nigeria police, we did all necessary documentation before embarking on the journey.
Though, I agreed that we were riding a new car but, the embarrassment of asking this and that questions as if we were on a bad mission made us to maintain eagle eyes on them by ensuring no paper was omitted. After checking the particulars and agreed how genuine the documents were, they went further to request for driving licence in which we gladly showed them. In fact the driving licence is due to expire by 2017.
As we were talking with one of the police men, one just came and demanded for our documents for the second time. As I rushed to get the documents again, one of them just showed his colleague that we have an expired plate number. When l came back, I was told i have an expired plate number. Huh! I said not again in my mind.
Expired plate number? Haba, I said. What happened to my plate number again officer? That was when they regain their wickedness. The Inspector now drew us closer to his phone and showed us that our plate number is invalid. Huh! Invalid ? as I asked; with less tone bearing in mind that I was issued a temporal document at the road safety office by agents . To cut the story short, I told them that my plate number is active and not invalid; and beside when have function of Nigeria Police changed to checking of ones plate number on the high way. As the argument was going on, they demanded we should follow them to the FRSC office to verify the authenticity of our plate number. When I discovered how stubborn this set of people were, we decided to rap small mind with them before they finally let us go. I even collected the website from them in order to share it here with our people. Naso police gently collected 1hr57 minutes of our precious time.
Fear Nigeria police abeg, they bad gan. Pls, mind my poor construction. I just dey vex.

This website has been on Nairaland for long. You need to do something fast on your number plate if indeed it came out invalid.

@OP where the issue with number plates comes from is the untimely updates on FRSC check websites especially for those that went to buy from other vendors aside FRSC & VIO.

It took more than 2yrs for them to upload and update my number plate details on their check website. So if you newly got your number plate, this might be your experience expecially if you bought from their annexes in the local government secretariats.

Men eh!! They succeeded in delaying us so long. I even showed them my recent plate number registration paper.

The funniest part is that this was not even the 4th time am applying that route.
