Boboye Oyeyemi, Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has applauded Usman Baba, Inspector General of Police, for banning SPY number plates in Nigeria.
The Corps Marshal’s applaud was conveyed in a statement released by Bisi Kazeem, Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) and Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO).
The compliment was expressed in a statement by Bisi Kazeem, Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) and Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO).
Backing up the IGP’s ban on SPY number plates, Oyeyemi gave orders to Commanding Officers of the Corps around the country to work with the Police Force to enforce the order.
He ordered that the original registered SPY number plates be immediately revoked.
However, Oyeyemi recommended drivers who were driving around with fading license plates to get new ones in order to prevent having their cars impounded.
The FRSC boss also mandated the confiscation of privately owned vehicles with commercial license plates.
Oyeyemi pointed out that unlicensed plates and fading license plates constituted a risk to national security.
“The use of the SPY and other unauthorised number plates to continually violate traffic rules and regulations must be brought to a halt.
“Directive is given to Commanding Officers to brace up and ensure that they give adequate priority to the enforcement”, the CM added.
