Nigeria: FRSC urged to enforce spy number plates ban



Federal Road Safety Corps Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, the Corps Marshal, has ordered all of the Corps’ commanding officers to work with the Nigeria Police Force to enact the spy number plate ban across the country.

According to a source, Usman Baba, the inspector general of police, has ordered a complete prohibition on the use of Police SPY vehicle number plates by all drivers in all 36states.

In a statement released on Thursday by the Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, Oyeyemi thanked the IGP for the ban and urged the FRSC staff to assist the police in enforcing it.

The statement was titled, ‘Spy Number Plate Ban: Corps Marshal commends IGP, tasks commanding officers to complement Nigeria police to enforce compliance’.

Road users who also display faded number plates should try to get new ones installed in order to prevent having their vehicles impounded, according to Oyeyemi.

Oyeyemi also directed the immediate and full force impoundment of private automobiles with commercial number plates.

He emphasized the dangers to national security of continuing to utilize fading and other unlawful car number plates.

“The use of the SPY and other unauthorized number plates to continually violate traffic rules and regulations must be brought to a halt, hence the directive given to Commanding Officers to brace up and ensure that they give adequate priority to the enforcement,” Oyeyemi was quoted as saying.
