New Number Plate By FRSC Is Illegal And Arbitrary Use Of Power - Court

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has declared that it is unconstitutional for the Federal Road Safety Corps to impose new number plates on motorists.

Justice James Tsoho delivered the judgment in a suit filed by a lawyer, Emmanuel Ofoegbu, challenging the powers of the FRSC to issue the new number plates.

The judge held that the corps cannot force Nigerians to acquire new number plates by impounding cars, without the backing of any legislation to that effect.

He said the act of the respondent amounts to an arbitrary use of power.
