Right hand drive ban in Nigeria

Lagos, a state in Nigeria, has banned right hand drive vehicles outright (source).  Seeing as there are countries that are RHD countries I find that interesting.

The thing that really caught my attention was a quote from the news story I found.

"Lagos state government said it will enforce the ban of unworthy vehicles on its roads as it announced its intention to impound right-hand drive cars." http://allafrica.com/stories/201002160680.html

Those are hurt words.  Ouch.  I'm sure some of the RHD cars are run down, but that could be any car.  I'm not sure if this is an exact quote, or a paraphrasing... but either way... ouch...
