VIO investigates cases of fake vehicle number plates

04 September 2013, 16:03

Kaduna - The Vehicle Inspection Office in Kaduna, on Wednesday said it is investigating 15 cases of fake vehicle number plates in the state.

The Public Relation officer of the agency, Buhari Aliyu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna that 15 persons had been arrested in various locations in the state.

Aliyu said that the vehicles of the suspects, documents and the fake number plates had been impounded.

According to him, investigation into the case is continuing and whoever is found to be involved will be taken to court for prosecution.

He said that some of the suspects had paid as much as N32 000 to some officials for the document, adding: "proper investigation is being undertaken to unravel the perpetrators.''

The spokesman noted that the introduction of online registration for vehicle documents had helped in dislodging those who had specialised in forging vehicle documents in the state.

He said the e-registration has made it easier to also distinguish between fake and original documents.

Aliyu advised motorists to stop patronising touts and deal directly with officials of the state Motor Licence Authority for their vehicle documents, to avoid falling victims of fraud.
