Police IG bans use of spy number plates, orders seizure

Usman Baba, the Inspector-General of Police, has ordered a ban on the use of SPY Vehicle Number Plates, Charmingpro reports

This is regardless of whether or not it is authorized, as all approvals have been revoked indefinitely.

Muyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, issued the order in a statement on Wednesday.

It followed individuals’ SPY plates’ consistent disregard for traffic rules, regulations, and other existing laws governing road use.

Baba instructed police officers and other security personnel assigned to VIPs to ensure prompt compliance or face arrest.

The IGP directed state police commissioners, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and supervisory Assistant Inspectors General of Police to go into action.

The IGP specifically directed them to confiscate all SPY license plates in use.

The owners of such vehicles should not be arrested unless they are police officers or officers of other security agencies on escort duty, according to the statement.

However, Baba warned that while carrying out the assignment, officers must ensure that citizens’ rights and privileges are respected.

“Members of the public are urged to cooperate with the Police in this regard, as the actions are intended to strengthen our internal security,” Adejobi also stated
