  1. All this is just fallacy. They charge as the spirit leads them.secondly in Lagos, LASTMA collects ridiculous amounts from people for all these road offences. So who really has jurisdiction?is it FRSXC or LASTMA? It all leads to double charges and extortion

    • No actually they do not especially if you know your right, it has happened to me and I went to the Bank to pay the N2,000 amount, went to their office the next day to give them the receipt and collected my driver’s license. It did not take up to 5minutes. As for the Lastma and FRSC jurisdiction. Federal roads are covered by FRSC while state roads by Lastma if you know the road is a state road and a FRSC man stops you, you can take it up in court and you would win.
