A Nigerian man has displayed an uncommon type of boldness by challenging VIO officials for not obeying the driving code in Nigeria.
In a video circulating online, a team of VIO officials were driving in their official vehicle without using seat belts and he decided to confront them.
The man got out of his car which was behind their van in traffic and asked them to explain why they were not using their seat belts.
They tried to ignore him and drive off but the traffic prevented them from moving more than a few inches forward.
He followed the VIO and said they are breaking the law which they are supposed to uphold, but in their defence, the men said they are on operation.
The man then asked which operation was taking place on the road that warranted them to drive without seat belts.
He noted that they arrest citizens for violating driving rules only for them to end up being the guilty ones.
The man said he was supposed to arrest them and seize the vehicle because of the offence, but he did nothing other than the confrontation. He then walked back to the car he alighted from and hopped back in the fron passenger's seat.

Reacting, @_iDanRuddy wrote; @lagosvio, It will be shameful not to publicly come out to clear the air. If those that are suppose to lead by example, boldly violate the law.Then the vehicle inspection agency have questions to answer.
@Farouk_FaroukD; The worst are @FRSCNigeria patrolling the streets of Abj with their vans & bikes wasting fuel looking for scapegoats or anyone making calls while driving. Useless and corrupt people
@jaybrizzy; A soldier won't arrest you for not using seatbelt though 😒. That was the whole point of his video 🙄. Arresting Nigerians for not using seatbelt and end up not using seatbelt themselves.
@iamMista_jay; I remember when one Road Safety officer in Wuse said he was going to slap me. I promised him to retaliate ASAP. He too ran mad when I told him “asoebi no be uniform, me and you na civilian so na 2 fighting”. FRSC & VIO dey sabi see themselves like DSS sometimes.
@EmmyMics; 😂 reminds me of when Road safety stopped my friend and said he was using expired tires. Baba took them to their vehicle and showed them the expiry date on theirs. Alas, they were both guilty. Nigeria is a skit.
@dadamayowax; Low key they were scared 😂 cause they don't know he might turn out to be
@deshotcaller; I love this type of boldness. And the phone camera up for prove and protection.
@K7BILA; The VIO officers are so confused. They don't know if to chance or if to apologize because who is this man that drank NaOH as breakfast this morning.
