The Chairman said that there was no iota of truth in the report of the video, he said that the man in question’s vehicle was impounded for driving against traffic at Allen Avenue inward Opebi Road. He narrated that the man haven discovered that there was traffic around the area, faced oncoming vehicles in their thousands creating a serious traffic bottleneck. 

The Chairman further stated that all efforts by Taskforce Officials led by a Senior Police Officer to persuade him to roll down his vehicle window glass for possible engagement on why he had to do that, proved abortive, but rather than being civil in his approach and conduct, he started making several phone calls and kept them waiting for hours, mobilizing the general public against the agency’s officials and threatened to deal with them, having known the degree and the magnitude of the offence committed which attracts forfeiture of the vehicle to the State government.
