The Corps Marshal of the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC), Dauda Ali Biu, has ordered an immediate clampdown on all rickety vehicles across the country.
The order followed a trending video of an old vehicle with mechanical issues plying the expressway with one of the back tyres off.
In a statement by the corps public enlightenment officer, Bisi Kazeem, the FRSC boss ordered an immediate clampdown on the vehicle and the arrest of the owner.
According to the statement, the vehicle, with Lagos registration number AA07AG, was not only old but was plying the highway with just three worn-out tyres.
Biu said the personnel of the agency had been directed to be on the lookout for the car and other unstable vehicles plying major roads in Nigeria, adding that the operation would be conducted nationwide.
He said FRSC will impose severe punishment on the owner and those using such vehicles.
