(FRSC) Move to arrest and prosecute driver’s licence racketeers in Enugu state.


Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it has spread its intelligence units to hunt, arrest and prosecute driver’s licence racketeers in Enugu state.
Sector Commander, Mr. Ogbonnaya Kalu, gave the assurance in Enugu on Friday.Kalu said that Nigerians wishing to obtain the driver’s licence should go directly to the FRSC website to get enlightened and fill the licence forms.
He said that they can also go to designated FRSC licensing offices and other FRSC formations to make adequate inquiries on how to obtain genuine driver’s licence from the right source.
The sector commander said that the licence was still affordable, adding that licence for three-year duration costs N6, 500 and that of five-year duration costs N10, 500.
“Obtaining the licence is further made easy by the FRSC, Vehicle Inspection Office (VIO) and state board of internal revenue having a one-stop shop.
“The one-stop shop brings all these agencies involved in licence production under one roof and all issues concerning licence is sorted out under the same roof.
“So, for no reason should anyone patronise touts or racketeers, who always inflate the amount payable to obtain a licence. These unscrupulous elements also produce fake licences to unsuspecting members of the public,’’ he said.
According to him, members of the public should report any person, group or syndicate claiming to produce, obtain or help in processing the driver’s licence.
He noted that it was a serious offence for anyone to drive without a valid licence.
