A Nigerian accountant @stanwalka, in his tweets disclosed that he got a fake tinted glass permit for his car, from Lagos Police headquarters he went to by himself because he didn’t want ‘any stories that touch’.
According to him, he got to know that it was a fake tinted glass permit after he had an exchange with a policeman at Benin Bypass, during a road trip he took to Abuja. His tweets reads;
