A farmer tweeting from ''FarmGreedy'' on twitter has cried out on the platform saying his car has been impounded.

He claims as he left the farm this evening to go and make a delivery, some police men in Ede, Osun state stopped him and demanded a N500 bribe. But papi was fasting, so he couldn't take any risk. He turned them down, and so they took him to the station, he alleged.

He then came back online to narrate how they are now allegedly demanding N10,000 so that his car will not be impounded. He also made a shocking revelation, saying no inventory was taken at the police station. Below are his heartbreaking tweets...

''I was harassed by the men of the @PoliceNG "A" Divisional Police station Ede while coming back from the farm this evening despite the showing them my pass and seeing crates of eggs in my car. I was arrested and my car seized when I refused to give then #500 bribe.@PoliceNG_CRU

''My car was impounded because I refused to give bribe at Ede 'A' Divisional Police station while coming back from the farm today. All plea fell on their deaf ear despite knowing am a farmer with lots of eggs in my car. The @NigeriaGov should please help the farmers

''What a joke... These guys are requesting for 10k before my car is released.... I will rather dash your station the car.

''I just left the @PoliceNG 'A'Division Police state Oja Timi,Ede,Osun State without my car,I need to break my fast. I must also say no inventory was made at the station. Unfortunately,these eggs are meant to be delivered tonight unfailingly. It's too bad farmers are treated ds way''
