The Federal Road Safety Commission has dismissed a Road Marshal Assistant, Sunny Kpogha, for alleged misconduct relating to issuing fake driving licences.
The FRSC Sector Commander in Edo, Mr. Familoni Oluwasusi, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Benin on Saturday.
He said the dismissal of Kpogha, who was in the Benin office, was to serve as a deterrent to other marshals in the commission.
He added that the dismissed staff had been handed over to the police for prosecution.
“The Corp Marshal and Chief Executive of FRSC has directed that Mr. Sunny Kpogha, a Road Marshal Assistant, having been adjudged guilty and his appointment terminated, be handed over to the police for prosecution.
“Issuing of fake driving licence to members of the public is a punishable offence and perpetrators should desist from it. Faking of driving licences erode the dignity of the country and reduce road taxes accruing to the government”, he said.
He called on members of the public to ensure that their biometric were taken during the driving licence issuing procedure.
