After being penalised N110,000 for parking his car in a “illegal” area, a motorist has expressed his displeasure.
According to the Instagram user, he went out with his mechanic to get a battery hanger for his car, and when they arrived, he parked just in front of the business.
While the mechanic went down to get the battery hanger, he stayed in his car.
When the mechanic returned and was about to drive away, he claims that he was approached by officers who accused him of illegal parking.
He claims they then towed his car to their office while he was inside, denting his bumper in the process.
He revealed that he was charged N110,000 for illegal parking (80K fine and 30K for tow charge) and N2,000 for gate fee to allow him drive his car out of the compound.
He explained that he had to make calls before the ticket was reduced to N25,000 and he still had to pay N2,00 for the gate fee.
He wrote in part: “110,000 Naira aira for illegal parking, is this not ridiculous?how much is the minimum wage in the country?how can you charge someone that muc… What if I didn’t know these people that called on my behalf, where would I have gotten that type of ridiculous amount to pay? This country is a mess.”
