The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun State says it will begin to impound vehicles and motorcycles plying the roads with unregistered or unauthorised number plates from Monday.
Mr Ahmed Umar, the FRSC Sector Commander in Ogun, stated that the operation would be carried out in conjunction with sister security agencies.
“Pursuant to the primary role played by the FRSC in advancing national security through rigorous intelligence, it has been observed that many motorists go about with unauthorised or unregistered vehicles.
“Therefore there will be a joint special enforcement with the police, the Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps and the Vehicles Inspection Office to checkmate erring motorists,’’ he said.
Umar enjoined motorists and motorcycle operators to always go through appropriate authorities to register their vehicles.
