The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, has ordered investigation into a particular plate number in Kano.
The number plate has the inscription of “Chip Whip” purportedly for a member of the Kano state House of Assembly.
Oyeyemi directed the Sector Commander of Kano State to investigate the origin of the number plate in the state.
Noting that the Corps marshal has directed all field commands across the country to be on vigilance and clampdown on producers and issuers of fake number plates, the Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, insisted in a statement in Abuja, that the said number plate did not originate from any of the FRSC Number Plate production centres, neither was it issued by the Corps.
According to Oyeyemi, a careful assessment of the said number plate revealed that the characters of the dye were not the same with that of the FRSC production plants.
He added that the colour of the graphics (Nigeria Map) on the plate is brown instead of green that FRSC uses.
