FRSC Orders Arrest of Motorists Using Faded Number Plates

Following a directive from its headquarters in Abuja, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has started arresting those motorists and motorcyclists using faded number plates in Nigeria.

Mr Akinwunmi Olaluwoye, the Idiroko Unit Commander of FRSC, who made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Ota, Ogun, noted that some criminals used faded number plates to commit crimes, hence the warning.

“We are, therefore, warning those who are fond of using faded number plates to desist from such act to prevent them from being apprehended by the FRSC,” he said.

The unit commander said the command had started arresting those found wanting and that those arrested, especially motorcycle riders, were forced to buy new number plates before they were released.

Olaluwoye said motorists around Idiroko axis were fond of using foreign number plates due to its closeness to the border, while some used faded number plates.

Olaluwoye advised motorists to adhere to traffic rules and regulations to reduce road crashes and ensure sanity on highways.
