The FRSC Sector Commander in Edo, Familoni Oluwasusi, made this known in an interview in Benin on Saturday.

“Insuring of fake driver’s license to members of the public is a punishable offence and perpetrators should desist from it.

“Faking of driver’s licenses erodes the dignity of the country and reduces road taxes accrued to the government,” he said.

He called on members of the public to ensure that their biometrics were taken during the driver’s license insuring procedure.
