Twenty Unpainted Commercial Vehicles Retained by FCT-DRTS

Posted by

Twenty unpainted automobiles were seized by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) – Directorate of Road Traffic Services (DRTS) – for allegedly acting as commercial taxis and unlawfully parking in the city center.

After the FCTA Task Force seized the vehicles at the Garki-Apo Bridge in Area 3, as well as the Federal Secretariat axis of the capital city on Friday, this was announced by Deborah Osho, chief of operations.

Osho said that the cars’ unlawful operations were just the beginning; they also damaged the city, impeded the Abuja Masterplan, and presented security risks, among other things.

She went on to say that some of the vehicles weren’t even roadworthy, thus they weren’t allowed in the city. She said that the perpetrators would face charges in a mobile court and that the DRTS will obtain the court’s approval to dismantle the unfixable vehicles.

The fact that these individuals may just enter Eagle Square and collect their passengers proves that they do not lack a destination.

However, in order to collect riders, they have opted to engage in unlawful parking or leave their vehicles parked unlawfully along this route.

On top of that, we have seen cars that are clearly not fit for the road. Despite the fact that they are unsightly and unfit for the city center, they are stacking up there anyhow.
