In Anambra State, 30 drivers faced arraignment for attempting to bribe Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) officials and committing various traffic offenses.

The arraignments took place before a mobile court on the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, presided over by Chief Magistrate Mike Anyadiegwu.


Of the 30 drivers arraigned, 27 were convicted, while three were cautioned and discharged.

This initiative by the FRSC, RS5.3 Anambra Sector Command, aims to ensure swift justice for road traffic offenders and curb reckless driving on highways.

ARC Charles A. Iyiegbuniwe, a public education officer at the FRSC Anambra Sector Command, confirmed the development in a statement on Tuesday.


He revealed that the drivers collectively committed 68 offenses, including overloading, failing to install speed limiting devices, driver’s license violations, and light signal violations.

Other offenses included using worn-out tires, driving while using a phone, and number plate violations.

Two drivers were specifically arraigned for attempting to corrupt marshals on duty.

The convicted drivers received options for fines as penalties for their offenses.

CC Adeoye A. Irelewuyi, the Sector Commander of RS5.3 Anambra Sector Command, expressed satisfaction with the mobile court’s operations.

He highlighted the necessity of the court sittings due to the reckless and improper use of roads by motorists, which has resulted in avoidable traffic crashes in the state capital.

Irelewuyi urged motorists to comply with traffic laws to ensure safety and prevent loss of life and property.


He also indicated that the mobile court sittings would continue periodically until a satisfactory level of compliance with traffic regulations is achieved.
