29 fake vehicle licence holders arrested in Anambra

22 April 2015, 18:13

Akwa - The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Awka Sector Command, says it arrested 29 motorists who were in possession of fake vehicle licences in Anambra.

The Sector Commander, Sunday Ajayi, made the disclosure in Awka on Wednesday.

Ajayi said that the arrests were made in the last one week.

He said that the command had embarked on a special operation code-named "Operation Eagle Eye".

He said the operation was aimed at apprehending motorists whose number plates and vehicle licences were not compliant with the FRSC regulations.

The sector commander said that such offenders would be prosecuted.

He urged vehicle owners to procure their licences and number plates from the legitimate authorities as they were designed to enhance security in the society.

Ajayi said that improper registration of vehicles had posed a security threat on the nation’s highways and warned that the commission was out to check that.

"The operation has started in Anambra and within one week we have arrested about 29 violators of licence compliance.

"However, I must remind motorists that these documents are security documents which must pass through the formal processes.

"When procured, the motoring public should ensure that they are uploaded into the FRSC database,’’ he said.

The sector commander advised motorists not to patronise touts but go to the nearest vehicle licencing authority to them and obtain genuine vehicle documents.
