The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has begun Operation RAID on recalcitrant road traffic offenders in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The FCT FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Samuel Ochi, confirmed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday.

Ochi said Operation RAID was to ensure that all offenders committing traffic offences such as overloading, driving against traffic and beating traffic light were brought to book.
He explained that recalcitrant offenders were those that had been arrested for the same offences several times but were not willing to change.
He said, “This is called Operation RAID and it will run through the month of May. We are going to enforce on recklessness too.
“It will be enforcement on all forms of recklessness, including those that are not properly licensed and those without number plates.
“And of course we know that many of the motorcycles and tricycle riders did not register their Keke NAPEP and bikes properly and thereby get themselves indulged in activities that could threaten the security of FCT.” (NAN)
Ochi further that the corps was working in collaboration with other sister agencies of government to ensure total enforcement and enlightenment, and added that FRSC would continue to adopt new strategies in order to have a safe motoring environment for everyone.
