The Federal Road Safety Corps and the Department of State Services have tracked down the producers of fake number plates in the country. The Corps Public Education Officer, Mr Bisi Kazeem, disclosed this in a statement made available to News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Abuja.
NAN reports that the Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, had ordered an investigation into a particular plate number in Kano. NAN reports that the number plate has the inscription of “Chip Whip” purportedly for a member of the Kano state House of Assembly.
Kazeem said that both agencies have apprehended some syndicates in Kano and Kebbi States in connection with the production of illegal number plates including the fake Kano ‘Chip Whip’ number plate.
According to Kazeem, upon sighting the illegal number plate, the Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi immediately directed the Kano state Sector Commander, Mr Zubairu Mato, to collaborate with security agencies to fish out the syndicates involved in producing fake number plates in the state.
