Private and commercial motorcyclists in Okitipupa Local Government area have been advised to register or have their motorcycles impounded.
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Okitipupa Unit Commander, Mrs. Modupe Ojogbenga gave the advised while speaking with newsmen during the week
The commander vowed to impound unregistered private and commercial motorcycles as part of measures to check insecurity in the area.
Ojogbenga said that security breaches in the state and the country at large were being perpetrated with motorcycles.
She said the unit has been using parks, markets, churches, mosques, and the media to sensitize the motorcyclists on the need to register before the enforcement would begin.
According to her, once the exercise begins, riders of unregistered motorcycles will be arrested and their motorcycles impounded.
“We have the mandate of the FRSC headquarters to ensure proper registration of motorcycles, because of the security issues being witnessed across the country.
“Most of the motorcycles in this corridor are not officially registered and this is a threat to security, so we have begun sensitization programmes in all public places to ensure they do what is right,” she said.
