A driver, Mosola Ajiboye with case number MOT/3396/2019 was arraigned in court for allegedly presenting a fake road worthiness paper to Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) when searched.
VOA News Correspondent gathered that the signature on the paper was different to that of the commander for VIO, Ota axis.
The commander in charge of the VIO Ota axis, Mr Kehinde Paul Osunkoya in his testimony affirmed that the signature and the stamp on the paper was not in any way related to his.
“One of our officers Mr Olumide attended to the driver, Mosola Ajiboye that fateful day. When asked to present the road worthiness for his vehicle, he presented an ingenuine paper. I did not sign or stamp for the paper which was also issued in Ota axis.
Meanwhile I am the only person eligible to sign any road worthiness paper in own axis. When asked where he got the paper from he said a man obtained it for him.”
The court was of the opinion that it was possible for any one who does not work in the Vehicle Inspection Organisation to fall victim of this as the person might not recognize the actual signature of the commander in charge, and the witness agreed.
The case was adjourned till Thursday 4th July 2019 for further hearing and final defense.
