The sector Commander of the FRSC in Lagos, Corps Commander Olusegun Ogungbemide revealed this in Lagos on Monday.

The operation which commenced on 4th October till the 10th of the same month, in all the units in Lagos.

The Command has according to the sector Commander impounded not less than 432 vehicles, including their drivers.

252 of these vehicles are commercial ones, while 180 were private.

He said some of them gave the excuse of forgetting theirs at home and in office but that they were made to present it.

The body said majority of the culprits could not produce their driver’s licence even when given the opportunity to do.

Ogungbemide felt bad owing to the apathy of people to the collection of their Driver’s Licence in all the registration centres.

He said majority of the drivers have been sent to mobile courts. This is in order to make them serve as deterrence to others.

He said the first and second phase of the patrol, tagged “Operation show your driver’s licence”, showed that some motorists still ply the road without a valid driver’s licence.

He said that there was a need for drivers to be handy with their licences and valid vehicle papers as the command would conduct the operation till the end of the year.

He explained that all vehicles impounded would not be released until they show evidence of having the documents.
