The Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, has ordered a statewide ban on roadblocks.
The CP also directed area commanders, divisional police officers, and commanders of tactical/operational units of the command to ensure strict compliance and enforcement of the order issued by the Inspector-General of Police, Baba Alkali Usman, suspending the issuance of SPY number plates and allowing tinted car glasses.
In a statement made by the police spokesman, Daniel Ndukwe, Aliyu stated that he had directed the arrest of motorists who cover their license plates.
While urging the commanders to ensure the order was professionally enforced to the letter, the police boss also cautioned motorists to desist from driving unregistered vehicles, covering or using unauthorised government number plates as well as replacing their number plates with vehicles’ logos.
Prior to the suspension, he also warned motorists against the illegal use of sirens and unpermitted tinted glasses.
Anyone found wanting would be arrested and prosecuted, he said.
He also urged locals to be law-abiding, watchful, and to report suspected criminals and their actions to the police as soon as possible.
