The Akwa Ibom  State Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has vowed to arrest and fine motorists  carrying fake and forged documents. 
The State Sector Commander, Matthew Olonisaye made the disclosure while briefing newsmen on the upcoming Joint Task Force Enforcement  Drive in Uyo. 
Olonisaye lamented the attitude of some motorists plying the road with fake documents and patronising touts instead of visiting the assigned centres . 
He said that  the Joint Task Force Enforcement Drive which has the collaboration of Vehicle Inspection Officers(VIO), Akwa Ibom Internal Revenue Service (AKIRS) and FRSC commenced on Tuesday 14th, 2021.
“Most drivers  are using  fake and expired  drivers license to ply the road. Let me state here that  anybody that will be caught  with fake and forged documents will be arrested and fined.
“Let me use this platform  to advise the public  not to patronise touts. They must also refrain  from receiving driver’s licence by proxy,” he added.
Olonisaye, who said  that the exercise  would last for one week, added that 4663 drivers licenses were left unclaimed  in their custody.
He assured that the exercise would be highly strict on the offenders, warning  his officers to desist from  receiving bribe.
“We have 4,663 driver’s licenses in our custody unclaimed. This exercise would  be highly strict on offenders who refuse to get or renew their  licences. 
“Giving and receiving bribe is an offence, I use this opportunity to warn my officers  against collecting bribe and anybody  caught  will be dealt with in accordance of our laws,” he said.
The Sector Commander further stressed  that motorists  using  illegal fake and old plate number  would  be impounded during  the exercise.
