Ebonyi Police Commissioner launches combat against tinted glasses

Ebonyi indexState Po­lice command has launched combat against unauthorized use of tinted glasses in vehicles in the state.

The police team prosecut­ing this is led by the Com­missioner of Police, Peace Ibekwe Abudallah.

The development tends to have turned against many government officials whose excuses had been rejected by the Commissioner. Also affected are those driving vehicles without or with covered plate numbers.

Reiterating the resolve of the police command to combat crime during and after the Christmas seasons, the commissioner, during a Media Summit of the Cor­respondents’ Chapel of the Ebonyi State Council of Ni­gerian Union of Journalists in Abakaliki, said nobody would be spared as such could be inimical to the peace in the area.

In a paper entitled “The roles of Security agencies/media relationship in en­suring crime free society”, which she presented at the event, the Commissioner of Police noted that report­age by the media should be such that have been sub­jected to professional scru­tiny.

Represented by state Po­lice Public Relations Of­ficer, ASP Jude Madu, CP Ibekwe Abdallah, advocat­ed for a greater synergy and true partnership between the media practitioners and security agencies in the state, as a way of providing security for the citizens.

She advised vehicle own­ers without plate numbers to visit the appropriate au­thorities and obtain vehicle plate numbers, as any vehi­cle seen without plate num­bers would be impounded.

“The ban on Okada op­eration in Abakaliki after 1900hrs (7PM) is still in force. All Okada operators should adhere strictly to the rule by the state. The use of dual carriage way by Okada riders is still prohib­ited. Owners of tinted glass cars are directed to report to SIB department in the po­lice headquarters to obtain their permit at no cost”, she warned.

The CP further directed owners of tinted glass cars to report to SIB department in the police headquarters to obtain their permit at no cost.

He appealed to all Ebony­ians to sustain the partner­ship with the command in its resolve to fight crime and criminality in the state.
