A yet to be confirmed source has revealed how some yet-to-be identified officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) have come under heavy heat after they were accused of puncturing the tire of a car driven by a lady rushing a pregnant woman in labor to the hospital.
A Twitter user, @Macheteros revealed that the FRSC officials penalized his sister for driving a pregnant lady who should have been on a seatbelt. He alleged that they punctured the tire after she refused to give them N20k.

@FRSCNigeria Look at road safety officials, extorting my elder sister because she refused to part with 20k. Her offense was because she was rushing a pregnant woman that was in the throes of giving birth to the hospital.
They had to puncture her tire all in an attempt to stop her from taking the woman to the hospital. Is this what they are supposed to do on the roads?
She wasn’t speeding. They said the woman should have been on her seat belt and the lady told them she can’t use seatbelt as she is currently having severe cramps and rushing to the hospital. Is that enough reason for them to deflate her tires?
