The usual is that social media investigators don't rest, someone ran her number plates and found out that the plates are in use and had been registered for another car.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) caught wind of this and poured hot water on Nana Aba by releasing a statement.

“The Authority wishes to remind vehicle owners and the general public that a person shall not drive a motor vehicle or trailer unless it is registered,” the statement sighted by Pulse.com.gh reads.

However, it seems , Nana Aba was not aware that the number plates were already registered to another vehicle. She immediately reported to the police and got in the process of having the vehicle registered in her name and get her own number plates. She also had a message for her haters on social media.

” I’m personally happy to help the police address this issue but for the trolls, I can’t be bothered. I just hope young people will direct their energies into more productive things than bring each other down”.
