VEHICLE INSPECTION OFFICERS URGED TO STOP INTIMIDATING MOTORISTS

                Mr.
Osemeke, who expressed sadness over what he descried as the unruly attitude of
the V.I.O officers said his car was impounded by the V.I.O men for almost a
whole day on the offence of an expired license.

                He
said, his driving licence was still valid but wondered why his car was impounded
between the hours of 9am in the morning to quarter past five in the evening.

                According
to him, he was stopped by the V.I.O officers at the Ministry of Works axis of
Obi Ikenchukwu road, Agbor and was asked to produce his driving licence which
he did but was surprised when the V.I.O officer that check the copy of the
licence asked him to pay 10,000 to a certain account in one of the banks in
Agbor before his vehicle will be released to him.

                Saddened
with the development, Mr. Osemeke said he contacted his lawyer over the issue,
who now through a letter addressed to the V.I.O Agbor office asking them to
release the driving licence of his client (Mr. Osemeke Moses) to him since the
licence is still valid.

                When
contacted the V.I.O officer who the copy of the driving license was given to
said he did not read the content of the licence paper very well before
concluding that the licence has expired.

                Mr.
Osemeke therefore called on the V.I.O officers to always put on their name tags
for easy identification, rather than keeping them in their pockets.
