More than 70 per cent of vehicles on Benue roads are not registered, according to Mr Terzungwe Atser, Acting Executive Chairman, Benue Board of Internal Revenue Services (BIRS).
Atser, who spoke on Wednesday in Makurdi, when he led BIRS and Vehicle Inspection Officials (VIO) on an enforcement exercise, also said that majority of vehicle owners and drivers were not licensed to drive.
He said that BIRS had commenced an inspection of vehicle particulars and would intensify efforts to apprehend defaulters.
“The operation will continue until we are sure that all vehicles are registered as specified by the law,” he said.
According to him, the 23 Local Government Areas of the state will be covered to ensure that there was no hiding place for defaulters.
