The restriction on rotating licence plates has been made public by the Federal Road Safety Corps.
It was learned via a statement released on Tuesday by the Assistant Corps Marshal, Bisi Kazeem, that the FRSC made the declaration in response to the widespread distribution of a video showing a car with revolving licence plates that had distinct information on each side.
The FRSC was made aware of a video that was going around on social media that showed a moving car with rotating licence plates.
“The vehicle number plates on display are: KUJ-304BV, while the other side which was automatically flipped carries a number tagged presidency with the following details, 01B-266FG,” the statement read partly.
The FRSC Ag. Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, has ordered full investigation into the trend as the FRSC noted that it did not produce a number plate with such double features, adding “only one number can be assigned to one vehicle and its owner at the same time.”
“The FRSC recently placed a public notice on the mainstream media dissuading Nigerians and the Motoring Public from according regards to vehicles with unauthorised number plates as the users are not duly registered and are often with sinister motives.
The Ag . Corps Marshal is also using this medium to warn Nigerians from replicating same as it is considered a criminal act which has its place in law,” the statement added.
