Obviously this did not happen in Nigeria. Obviously this can’t happen in Nigeria.
A passenger has been fined almost £800 (₦227,000) after he was caught without a train ticket – that would have cost just £2.70 (₦770). Andrew Davies, of Exeter, Devon, was found guilty of travelling on a Great Western Railway train in Paignton, South Devon, in June with intent to avoid paying the fare. Torbay magistrates fined the 49-year-old £550 and ordered him to pay £215 costs – and the £2.70 fare in compensation. Hilarious right?
That’s a total of £767.70 due to the court, much more than the £2.70 it would have cost him for the journey in the south west.
What do you think?
