We have always made it our duty here on Naijauto to warn our readers about some habits that could either jeopardize their safety or put them into trouble. Many of these habits are carried out innocently, but what you should is that there are different kinds of people out who could put you into trouble. Whether they are uniformed or not, you need to take extra precaution when dealing with these people especially when you are driving. One of the deadly mistakes is opening your car trunk for them from the inside. This can really put you locked up for years if you don’t shine your eyes well. News has been going viral recently about an anonymous person that shared his experience with uniformed people while driving.


For security reason, always open your car truck from outside during a police check

On my way home today at around 8: 15 pm, as soon as I took a right turn from star gate towards old terminal, a policeman signalled me to stop.

As I stopped, he asked me to open the trunk of the car. I opened the trunk from inside and was about to step down, but the policeman said, “Ok Ok u may go.”

I started my car and started driving, but something struck my mind, as from my rear view mirror, I saw one of the policemen immediately on his phone.

I went a bit ahead and finding a good road light stopped my car. Switching off the engine I went and opened my car trunk.

Guess what…. I was shocked to see two small zip lock pouches with white crystals inside. I was numbed but just decided to throw it away and thanked God for saving me from such rascals who would have caught me in a drug related case.

The policemen must have informed their colleagues standing at the next checkpoint to get hold of so and so car number.

I was correct in my guess. Approx half a mile later I was stopped by another policeman. This time too I was asked to open my trunk.

Now I got down, went behind and opened the trunk physically. I’m sure they must have been puzzled and surprised that they did not find anything.

*Please don’t open your car trunk from inside, for anyone, even at Malls. Always step down and open the trunk with keys and permit searching under your own supervision.*

Kindly share this as much as u can, to save people.
