Customs officials at Seme-Krake border in Lagos, southwest Nigeria,
have intercepted a Sport Utility Vehicle, SUV, with a fake royal plate
number. The vehicle was impounded at the Seme-Krake border as one
of the suspects was attempting to smuggle it into Nigeria from Benin
In an attempt to evade customs charges and deceive customs officials
that the vehicle belonged to a Nigerian royal father, the smuggler faked
its plate number to read: Oba Ponbayi, Onisanlu of Isanlu Kingdom.
fictitious kingdom doesn’t exist anywhere in Nigeria,” Mr. Sahabi
Abubakar Sadiq, the Area Customs Controller at Seme-Krake border told
journalists on Thursday.
“And Oba Ponbayi does not exist also. It’s just a combination of names from different parts of Nigeria,” Sadiq said……Lol at Nigerians and their criminal creativity.
