Ekiti impounds 41 vehicles

19 March 2013, 09:09

Ado-Ekiti -  No fewer than 41 vehicles have so far been impounded in Ekiti State as general inspection of motor vehicle particulars and drivers licence entered the second week on Monday.

The Chairman of the State Internal Revenue Service, Isola Akingbade, gave the figure  in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ado-Ekiti.

He said that those whose vehicles were seized failed to heed the warnings earlier issued to vehicle owners to always carry along relevant documents before plying the roads.

The exercise, he said,  was being jointly carried out by the FRSC, police and the State Revenue Service.

He explained that the exercise was  to encourage motorists to properly register their vehicles to tackle crime, especially theft.

“It is also meant to discourage illegal use of government   number plates on private vehicles and illegal use of  private vehicles for commercial purposes,” he said.

Akingbade told NAN that a combined team of Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs), Ekiti State Traffic Management Agency  and the police had already been deployed to strategic locations to enforce the order.

The chairman said that the exercise,  which was taking place simultaneously in other towns in the state, would last for eight weeks in the first instance.
