A Taxi driver caused a scene in Abuja recently after Federal Road Safety officials and some police officers impounded his vehicle for violating the lockdown order put in place by President Buhari.
It will be recalled that the President extended the lockdown on Saturday as part of measures to prevent the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus.
FRSC officials were shocked when the driver started crying, screaming “Wetin I do Nigeria?” severally before proceeding to strip himself naked. In the footage seen by POLITICS NIGERIA, the driver lamented that it was hunger that drove him to violate the order.
In his words; “Wetin i do? I no dey provoke, I be Edo boy! I get wife, I get children! na money I come find to chop, no money, nothing. You tie us keep for house baba! Wetin you make we do? nothing!”
“Hunger virus pass coronavirus! I want make the world see am…E dey hot for us..E dey hot! We wan die, they wan kill us! Wetin we do? Ahh! I dey vex na! They seize my key…Wetin i go chop? You want make i go rob? make i carry gun?”
As officials proceeded to take his vehicle away, the driver dramatically jumped into one of the Hilux trucks belonging to the police and ‘collapsed’.
He was taken to a police station where he was calmed down and given clothes to wear. At the time of filing this report, It’s unclear if he was given back his vehicle or released.
