…The acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali-Biu, has declared a nationwide clampdown on motorcyclists who failed to register their bikes with the National Vehicle Identification Scheme.
Ali-Biu issued a directive to the 37 Sector Commanders across the nation to commence with immediate effect the full force enforcement on any motorcycle seen without appropriate registration.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Corps Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, on Monday, titled, ‘Enhancing national security; Acting Corps Marshal directs sector commanders to commence full enforcement of unregistered motorcycles.’
The statement partly read, “The directive came following the imminent need to comply with the Federal Government’s order on clamping down on this horde of unregistered motorcycles on Nigerian roads.
“The order was necessitated by the state of insecurity and the need to curb it by bringing to a halt the continuous operations of these categories of vehicles without registration on our roads.’’
The FRSC boss ordered his men to liaise with the Boards of Internal Revenue in their respective states to set up a Taskforce in conjunction with the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies, including Vehicle Inspection Office for effective enforcement of his directive.
