1. Overloading

In the video seen by Legit.ng, Ibrahim stated that it was wrong for a VIO personnel to arrest a vehicle for overloading.

He stated that such offences do not fall under their jurisdiction.

Ibrahim said:

“If VIO arrests you for overloading, it’s wrong. It’s not his duty.”

2. Traffic Offences

He also mentioned that it is not the duty of a VIO personnel to arrest a vehicle for traffic offences.

Ibrahim said:

“VIO is not supposed to arrest somebody for traffic offences. The only offence they are supposed to arrest you for is license violation; you don’t have light in your vehicle.”

3. Use of Phone

He also mentioned that using a phone while driving is a traffic offence that has nothing to do with the VIO.

He said:

“Use of phone, overloading, over speeding, dangerous driving and what have you. Offences like this are not the work of VIO; it’s the work of FRSC.”
