The Acting FRSC Corps Marshal, Mr. Dauda Biu, has ordered the 37 Sector Commanders across the nation to impound any motorcycle without appropriate registration.
He gave the directive in a statement issued in Abuja by the Corps Public Education Officer, Mr. Bisi Kazeem.
The FRSC boss said the directive became necessary following the increasing number of unregistered motorcycles plying the roads.
Additionally, there is a need for all motorcycles to be duly captured in the national vehicle identification scheme database.
According to him, this development would help to curb insecurity.
Mr. Biu urged Sector Commanders to immediately liaise with the Boards of Internal Revenue in their respective states to set up a task force on the issue.
He noted that the impounding of errant motorcycles should be done jointly with the Police, the Vehicle Inspection Office and other stakeholders for effective enforcement.
