Other officials belonging to Local Governments and Local Council Development Authorities were warned to stop doing the exclusive job of TRACE officials.

A statement from the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for  Justice, Dr. Olumide Ayeni, said: “all persons and agencies, particularly those appointed by Local Governments and Local Council Development Authorities across Ogun State are to desist forthwith from any act of controlling, regulating or enforcing all traffic laws in any part of Ogun State”.

Likewise, Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) officials have also been warned to leave the verification of vehicle particulars to only Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs).
