Oyeyemi said that the corps would go after wanted offenders as from Monday, Jan. 25.

The FRSC Boss further noted that offenders who voluntarily reported at any of the FRSC offices nationwide and made payment would not be prosecuted.
The statement reads, “It follows that beginning from Monday, Jan 25, 2021 all commands shall commence the arrest of the targeted offenders, which will include home arrest where necessary, deploying the New Vehicle Identification System (NVIS).
