Nigerian Lamborghini driver arrested in singapore for reckless driving after video of his dangerous driving goes viral

A 45-year-old Nigerian Lamborghini driver was arrested for reckless and dangerous driving in Singapore on Tuesday, October 11th.

The incident which occurred on October 1, was recorded by an in-car camera and the footage went viral after it was uploaded online last week. There was a narrow gap - barely a car's width - between the two vehicles travelling on the expressway. Yet the blue Lamborghini blatantly squeezed through, almost causing an accident, while cutting across the lane before speeding off into the distance.

The Nigerian Lambo driver has been identified as Paul Gabriel Amos from Agulu, Anambra State  who lives in Singapore. All Singapore Stuff also shared newspaper reports of Paul Gabriel Amos being involved in scams, one of which implicated him in a case where $27 million dollars were scammed from Citibank back in 2009. When Paul Gabriel Amos tried to visit the United States, he was arrested by the FBI and brought to court in which he denied all allegations. Amos convinced Citibank officials to wire him $27 million belonging to Ethiopia. Rather than go with the usual Nigerian nom , Amos pretended to be an official with the National Bank of Ethiopia. Amos forged “official-looking” documents that confirmed his status with the central bank and instructed

As at last Friday, the 33-second video, which was originally posted on Facebook by the affected driver, Mr Heng See Meng, and uploaded on other pages, had more than 201,000 combined views and was shared more than 2,300 times.

A police spokesman later confirmed that a Nigerian man was arrested for dangerous driving in relation to the incident. His vehicle, identified as a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder, was also impounded.

In the video, Mr Heng, with his family, is driving his car on the rightmost lane of the three-lane East Coast Parkway. A van is seen just ahead of his car, in the middle lane, with a small gap diagonally between the two vehicles. Suddenly, the blue Lamborghini zooms up behind the van, weaving and squeezing through the gap between the two vehicles, then overtakes them, cutting to the right lane, and speeding off. Mr Heng's car then overtakes the van, switches a lane to the left in front of it, before an orange Lamborghini appears on the rightmost lane and drives into the distance as well. Mr Heng told The Straits Times Online that it was a "very scary experience".
"I really hope all drivers respect road discipline and not bring danger to other road users," he said.
His video also sparked off online outrage against the Lamborghini driver, with peole condemning his actions. Many condemned the driver of the supercar for putting himself and the other drivers at risk. Some also questioned why the driver had not overtaken via the empty left-most lane, while others blamed Mr Heng's car for hogging the right-most lane.

Road safety experts described the driver's actions as dangerous and irresponsible.
Singapore Safety Driving Centre's training manager Gerard Pereira said:
"The blue Lamborghini driver appeared to be showing off, unlike (the other Lamborghini driver) who waited for the car (with the in-car camera) to switch a lane to the left before overtaking on the right. He should not be on the road if he is this impatient. What kind of driving ethics does he have?"
Accident reconstruction expert Kelvin Koay said:
"Had the van slowed down or the other car sped up a little, an accident would have occurred. Plus, given the Lamborghini was going faster than the two vehicles, had there been any impact, it could have caused their cars to spin out of control. It would have been disastrous."
If convicted of dangerous driving, an offender can be jailed up to a year and fined up to $3,000. Lifestyle news site Covered Asia reported two weeks ago that there was only one customised Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder in Singapore, and it was sold with an open-category certificate of entitlement of $1.3 million.

To think you are the blog foreigners and outsiders read when they want stories about Nigerians.

Your stories are mostly negative and further give a wrong impression of Nigerians especially those living abroad

Celebrate us more! There are a lot of good things going on with Nigerians both home and abroad. Not this stories of Fraud, drugs and wrong doings.

no wonder most igbos r always supporting corrupt-thieving govt officials. Its part of their culture to break the law to get rich. That's why they r not happy that PMB is trying to bring some sanity into this country. God big pass all of una
