Delta State police commissioner, Wale Abass, has announced that all tinted vehicles and vehicles without number plates, will be Impounded in order to curb insecurity in the state.
This was revealed in a statement issued by the state’s Public Relations Officer, Edafe Bright, on Tuesday, September 19, noting that the new development is to help reduce the rate of kidnapping in Delta state.
In the statement, the commissioner urged the public to bear with the police as this might be uncomfortable for road users.
He further stated that all vehicles plying the roads must be registered and must have opened number plates.
The statement partly reads, “The Commissioner of Police charged all area commanders, Divisional Police Heads, and Tactical Commanders to double their efforts in the fight against criminals in the state.
“He equally appealed to members of the public to understand and bear with Command as the measures being emplaced, which is in their ultimate interest, might bring slight discomfort to the residents, particularly road users.
“Due to the activities of criminal elements who carry out their nefarious activities using tinted vehicles and sometimes covered numbers plates, it is on this note that the CP warns that all vehicles that ply the road in the state must be duly registered with their number plates visible as all unregistered vehicles and vehicles with covered number plates will be impounded.”
