The Acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu, has issued directives to the 37 Sector Commanders of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to commence full force enforcement on any motorcycle seen without appropriate registration.


Biu, who expressed worry over the increasing number of unregistered motorcycles plying the roads, underscored the urgent need to ensure that all two-wheel vehicles are duly captured in the National Vehicle Identification Scheme database.


In a statement on Monday by Mr.Bisi Kazeem, Assistant Corps Marshal, Corps Public Education Officer, explained that the directive came following the imminent need to comply with the Federal Government’s order on clamping down on the 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.


“While laying particular emphasis on the security implications of not capturing all motorcycles in the national database, the Acting Corps Marshal charged the Sector Commanders to immediately liaise with the Boards of Internal Revenue in their respective states, set up a Taskforce in conjunction with the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies where necessary, including Vehicle Inspection Office and other stakeholders for effective enforcement.


“Expectedly, the directive also conveyed that the unregistered motorcycles are to be impounded while the owners are mandated to commence and complete full registration of the motorcycles before they are released.


“The Acting Corps Marshal said that the operation is aimed at getting unregistered motorcycles registered and documented in the national database,” the statement said.


The statement said the FRSC operatives may not issue a notice of offence ticket to the operators of motorcycles, adding that, however, all motorbikes impounded must be fully documented.
