The Federal Roads Safety Corps, (FRSC), has ordered an immediate clampdown on all rickety vehicles across the country.
The order was given by Corps Marshall, Dauda Ali Biu and announced by the Corps’ Public Enlightenment Officer (CPEO), Bisi Kazeem, in a statement released on Thursday, August 17.
Kazeem said the order became necessary following a trending video of an old vehicle with mechanical issues plying the expressway. He noted that the back tyre of the rickety vehicle was off and the vehicle was being controlled by the driver with three worn out tyres.
The corps marshal has now ordered the immediate clampdown on the vehicle and the arrest of the owner in line with its responsibility to ensure safety of all road users.
