The Corps Public Education Officer, ACM Bisi Kazeem, said in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja that the arrest was in line with the ongoing nationwide clampdown on unstable, unregistered and improperly registered vehicles.

Kazeem said that the operation followed public outcry about the security risks posed by noticeable violations of road traffic regulations by some motorists, including those using foreign and Nigerian number plates on the same vehicle.

He said the FRSC patrol team arrested one of the perpetrators, who was using two number plates, BBJ746AA and CV51UMC, on his Volkswagen Golf 3 car.
