The Federal Road Safety Commission on Saturday June 2015 dismissed a Road Marshal Assistant, Sunny Kpogha, for alleged insuing fake driver’s licenses.
In an interview with PREMIUM TIMES, the FRSC Sector Commander in Edo, Familoni Oluwasusi, stated the dismissal of Mr. Kpogha, who was in the Benin office, was to serve as deterrent to other marshals in the commission.
He said 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.
“Insuring of fake driver’s license to members of the public is a punishable offence and perpetrators should desist from it.
“Faking of driver’s licenses erodes the dignity of the country and reduces road taxes accrued to the government,” he said.
He called on members of the public to ensure that their biometrics were taken during the driver’s license insuring procedure.
