The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it does not produce rotational vehicle number plates and has thus declared it “illegal”. 

A video circulating on social media shows a vehicle with automatically-rotating number plates.

In a statement on Tuesday, Bisi Kazeem, the assistant corps marshal, said the FRSC assigns only one number plate per vehicle. 

Kazeem said the number plate displayed in the video is “unauthorised” and only intended for “sinister motives”. 


“The attention of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has been drawn to a video circulating on social media which displayed a vehicle circulating with rotational number plates,” the statement reads. 

“The vehicle number plates on display are: KUJ-304BV, while the other side which was automatically flipped carries a number tagged presidency with the following details, 01B-266FG.

“The FRSC Ag. Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu, has ordered full investigation into the trend as FRSC does not produce a number plate with such double features, only one number can be assigned to one vehicle and its owner at the same time 


“FRSC recently placed a public notice on the mainstream media dissuading Nigerians and the Motoring Public from according regards to vehicles with unauthorised number plates as the users are not duly registered and are often with sinister motives.”

Kazeem warned  Nigerians to desist from replicating such acts, adding that it is considered criminal.
