Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Boboye Oyeyemi has commended Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba for banning spy plate number.
Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO) Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM), Bisi Kazeem conveyed the commendation in a statement.
Oyeyemi directed Commanding Officers of the Corps nationwide to collaborate with the Police Force to enforce the order.
The CM directed the immediate reversal of SPY numbers to the original registered number plates.
Oyeyemi, however, advised road users going about with faded plates to replace them to avoid impoundment of their vehicles.
The FRSC chief also ordered the seizure of private vehicles using commercial number plates.
Oyeyemi noted that faded and other unauthorised plates posed a threat 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.
