Mr. Dauda Biu, the Acting FRSC Corps Marshal has directed the 37 Sector Commanders across the country to impound any motorcycle without appropriate registration to curb insecurity
In a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, Biu gave the directive through the Corps Public Education Officer, Mr. Bisi Kazeem.
He said: “All unregistered motorcycles are to be impounded. The owners are required to complete full registration of the motorcycles before they are released, according to Vanguard report.
“Operatives may not issue notice of offence ticket to the operators. All impounded motorbikes must be fully documented, however,’’ he added.
He said the directive became necessary because of insecurity as it has become uncomfortable seeing increasing number of unregistered motorcycles on the roads.
According to him, there is also need for all motorcycles to be duly captured in the National Vehicle Identification Scheme database.
“Having all motorcycles in the national database, can help curb insecurity,” he said.
Biu further urged the sector commanders to immediately liaise with the Boards of Internal Revenue in their respective states to set up a taskforce on the directive.
