“The special mobile court was carried out at the instance of the Ag. Sector Commander, Deputy Corps Commander Ibrahim Sadiq.

“He directed clampdown on reckless drivers and articulated vehicles plying the metropolitan highways to curtail crashes within the township.

“The offenders were arrested for violations including failure to use seatbelt, driving without spare/worn out tyres as well as driving without vehicle license,” the statement explained.

It added that the Command was working in collaboration with the Plateau Judiciary to arrest and prosecute recalcitrant drivers and create a safe motoring environment in the state.

“The mobile court exercises will be ongoing within the state, hence drivers should bear in mind that obedience to road rules at all times should be sacrosanct,” it said.
