The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has taken action against 69 vehicles for a range of offences in its ongoing efforts to maintain the safety and cleanliness of Abuja city.

Abdul-Lateef Bello, the Director of the FCT Directorate of Road Traffic Service (DRTS), disclosed on Monday that these vehicle seizures are part of an ongoing operation aimed at eliminating illegal operators of commercial vehicles within the city.

These vehicles were apprehended by the FCT combined Security Task Force at various locations in the federal capital, Abuja, with the primary goal of enhancing the security of lives and property in the city.

Bello elaborated on the reasons for impounding these vehicles, which include violations such as improper parking, operation of substandard vehicles, violations of number plate regulations, and suspicion of involvement in one-chance scams, among other infractions.

He emphasized that the FCT Administration remains steadfast in its commitment to keeping the city free from all forms of disturbances and nuisances.

Furthermore, Bello revealed that the owners of the impounded vehicles would face legal prosecution through the FCT Mobile Court, situated within the DRTS premises.
