New press reports confirm that the Zone 4 FRSC has chosen “Operation Tracker” as the official tag for this new exercise.
FRSC Zone 4 Command begins tracking down all fleeing traffic offenders in Nasarawa, Benue, and Plateau states
The Assistant Corps Marshal and Zonal Commanding Officer of the FRSC Zone 4, Kayode Olagunju reportedly disclosed this new development in a recent press interview. He revealed that the command is now on the lookout for all traffic offenders that were initially arrested and issued “Notice of Offence” tickets but have exceeded their 7-day “grace” period without paying their fines.
Kayode Olagunju also disclosed that “Operation Tracker” is the officially chosen tag for this new exercise and it is scheduled to be completed between the 11th and 17th of this month.
ACM Kayode Olagunju further explained that any offender who voluntarily submits himself/herself to the nearest FRSC office to make the necessary payment as stipulated will be spared from disciplinary actions.
On the other hand, any of the offenders that eventually get re-arrested by the FRSC operatives will sure not enjoy such immunity as the directive issued allows for their vehicles to be impounded while they also get prosecuted. According to sources, such offences could attract 6-month imprisonment sentence apart from mandatory fines.
Meanwhile, investigations are still ongoing regarding the recent incident involving the murder of 2 FRSC officers with 10 others kidnapped by bandits in Nasarawa. Watch the press report video below for more info:
