Police launch clampdown on vehicles with tinted glass, covered number plates in FCT

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Joint Security Team has launched an operation to clamp down on the use of vehicles with unauthorised tinted window glass and covered number plates.

 

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in FCT, ASP Mariam Yusuf, disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

 

Yusuf said that the team, which was chaired by the Commissioner of Police in FCT, Mr Bala Ciroma, was constituted, as part of efforts to rid the territory of criminality.

 

She said that the operation became necessary following a recent security threat analysis conducted by the joint team.

 

The PPRO said that the analysis revealed that criminal syndicates now carried out their nefarious activities, using vehicles with tinted windows and covered number plates.

 

“The team, therefore, wishes to warn residents using unauthorised covered number plates and tinted vehicles within the FCT to desist, as violators will be arrested and prosecuted accordingly,’’ she said.

 

Yusuf appealed to the residents to cooperate with security agencies and report any suspicious movement, emergency or distress in their neighbourhoods through the phone numbers, 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883, or 112.
