In order to address insecurity in the state, Wale Abass, the commissioner of the Delta State police, has declared a ban on tinted cars and vehicles without licence plates.
The state’s public relations officer, Edafe Bright, revealed this in a statement on Tuesday.
The new improvement, according to the statement, was implemented to lessen abduction and other criminal activity in Delta.
He said that, in light of the recent incident, a warning has been sent to officers of the Delta state command on the necessity to vigorously carry out their duties.
While adding that all cars on the road must be registered and have open number plates, he pleaded with the people to be patient with the police because this can be upsetting for locals and other road users. He stated once more that any contraband vehicles will be impounded.
According to the statement, all area commanders, divisional police heads, and tactical commanders have been ordered to increase their efforts in the state’s battle against crime.
He also urged the general population to have patience with Command since the actions being implemented, which are in their best interests overall, may cause some little inconvenience to locals, particularly road users.
The CP warns that all vehicles that ply the roads in the state must be duly registered with their number plates visible because unregistered vehicles and vehicles with covered number plates will be impounded due to the activities of criminal elements who sometimes use tinted vehicles and covered number plates.
