In a shocking incident captured on a video shared on Twitter by user @Naija_PR, a police van was involved in a car chase that led to the crushing of a customer’s vehicle.
The unfortunate incident occurred as the police officers allegedly mistook a mechanic for a “yahoo boy” (internet fraudster).
According to the video footage, which quickly went viral on social media, the police van can be seen in pursuit of a vehicle on a busy street.
In the heat of the chase, the police van collided with a parked car owned by a customer who had brought it to the mechanic’s workshop for repairs.
Eyewitnesses reported that the confusion arose when the police mistook the mechanic, who was test-driving the customer’s vehicle, for a suspect involved in fraudulent activities.
The police, believing they were pursuing a criminal, engaged in a high-speed chase that resulted in the collision with the innocent customer’s car.
Bystanders quickly gathered at the scene, expressing shock and concern over the incident.
