IGP bans use of unmarked, covered vehicle number-plates
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has proscribed with immediate effect the covering of vehicle number-plates by all unauthorised vehicle users across the country.
The IGP gave the order yesterday in Abuja following intelligence report that the unwholesome practice may be deployed by some unscrupulous persons to aid the commission of electoral-related offences before, during and after the Saturday, March 9, 2019 governorship and House of Assembly elections.
He, therefore, directed all Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs) and Commissioners of Police (CPs) in the zonal and state commands to strictly enforce the restriction order.
He also warned that any security personnel found escorting their principal with an unmarked vehicle or those with masked vehicle number-plates will be arrested and dealt with accordingly.
