Olugbenga explained that every vehicles plying government roads must be duly registered with valid documents, adding that they were out to ensure vehicle owners comply with the traffic rules.

According to him, “due to the security situation in th state we have to check  the validity of the vehicles plying our roads, as criminals are making use of vehicles with invalid document. It will be hard to track a vehicle with invalid document.
During the enforcement exercise we have seen many vehicles that are still using old plate numbers, people driving without valid driving license while some have expired long ago.
What we do for the traffic offenders was that we filled form that contained their data , that is what they will take to any of our office that is close to them for registration and validation of their document.
Renewal of vehicle document is not more that an hour, while vehicle registration is 24 hours.”

One of the affected vehicle owners, Akintola Marcus said he is a law abiding and always takes the renewal of his vehicle particulars seriously.
Now that I have been booked, I will check up again to see if my papers are ready. I have been on it but the papers are not yet ready, I do not take matters that have to do with my vehicle particulars with levity."
