A picture which is going viral on the social media has made Nigerians call out the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) over the seeming danger posed by such a vehicle on the road.
The obvious danger is not only to the truck and its occupants, but other road users as well.
The picture, posted on Facebook on April 4 by a user with username Emmanuel Ado, shows a truck in part with worn out tyres and the tyre covered with used bathroom slippers.
Naija News, however, reports that the date and location where the picture was taken could not be ascertained.
The picture also did not show the plate number of the truck with such tyres.
See the photo below:
The photo has been generating comments and reactions from social media users. See some of their comments on Facebook.
