FRSC Nabs 25 People With Fake Drivers’ License in Akwa Ibom

The Akwa Ibom Command of the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC) says it has arrested 25 fake drivers’ license holders in the state.

The sector commander of the Corps, Cecilia Alao, who disclosed this to newsmen yesterday in Eket explained that the fake drivers’ license holders were allowed to pay fines so that they can procure genuine ones.

Alao also said that the command apprehended one suspect who is a member of the fake drivers’ license syndicate and handed him over to the State Security Services for further investigation.

“Yesterday, we arrested one person and he mentioned the producer of the fake license; we arrested and handed him over to the SSS for investigation,’’ she said.

She said the command arrested the drivers’ license holders through special operations last week.

“The command is fighting seriously and going after those in possession of the fake drivers’ license in the state,’’ she said.

The sector commander lamented that the culprits are sabotaging the revenue of the state.

Alao said that the command had commenced sensitisation programme to enlighten the public on how to obtain genuine drivers’ license in the state.

“The way to start is to sensitise and make people know the procedure in getting a genuine drivers’ license in the state.

“We are sensitising the people as well as apprehending those holding the fake drivers’ license so that they will go and acquire a genuine driver’s license,’’ she said.

She expressed worry over incidences of fake drivers’ license in the state, noting that many drivers obtained their licenses through unauthorised channels without undergoing bio-metrics describing such development as serious and needed to be curtailed.
