FCT Police takes tough measures against motorists driving without number plates

The FCT Police Command has raised concern over the manner in which motorists drive around the nation’s Capital territory with single or no number plates, including car dealers beyond the stipulated time, which is 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM . Section 25 (5) of the Federal Capital Territory Road Transport Regulation Act, 2005.


The command in a release signed by SP Josephine Adeh FCT PPRO stated that several recorded cases of armed robbery, popularly known as “one chance,” were mostly associated with vehicles with single or no number plates.


She maintained that this unlawful act has pricked the attention of the populace, who have now begun to question the effectiveness of the police in addressing the menace.


Adeh said the Commissioner of Police FCT, CP Benneth C. Igweh has given a marching order that vehicles plying the roads with a single or no number plate should be impounded, with the driver arrested and prosecuted.


The CP also warned car dealers against parking their vehicles in an unauthorised parking lot and driving beyond the stipulated time, which is six o’clock p.m., as defaulters will be made to face the full wrath of the law.


CP Bennett Igweh reiterated that in the effort to ensure the safety and security of residents of FCT, no motorists or car dealers who come in conflict with the substantive laws with be spared.


He therefore urged the residents to be vigilant and take advantage of the police emergency lines in reporting suspicious activities through: 08032003913, 08028940883, 08061581938, and 07057337653 PCB: 09022222352, CRU: 08107314192.
