Yobe: Police Bans Tinted Glasses, Covered Numbers On Cars

The Yobe State Police Command has banned the use of tinted glasses and covered number plates as it has been found to aid crime in the state.

In a statement on Monday evening signed by PPRO, Yobe command, DSP Dungus AbdulKarim, investigations revealed how some criminals hide behind the tinted glasses to hide from security personnel and the public while roaming freely in the state.

The statement added that covered plate numbers also make it difficult to trace of victims in car crashes and arrest those found wanting when it comes to traffic violations.

"The Command wishes to notify the general public that punitive measures will be taken against motorists who contravene the offence of unauthorised use of tinted glasses.

"The command therefore gives 14 days grace period/ultimatum for users without license to remove same or face the wrath of the law.

"These include vendors who counsel/procure/ cause such to be fixed on motor vehicle glasses who are hereby warned to desist forthwith as the Motor Vehicle (prohibition of tinted glasses) regulations describes it as an offence," the statement added.

It further stated that anyone found breaking the law would be made to face the law.
