Delta Police Ban Tinted Vehicles, Covered Number Plates

The Delta State police commissioner, Wale Abass, has implemented a ban on vehicles with tinted windows and those lacking number plates as part of security measures to address insecurity in the state.

This announcement was made via a statement from the state’s Public Relations Officer, Edafe Bright, on Tuesday.

The objective behind this action is to reduce the incidence of kidnapping and unlawful activities in Delta. Commissioner Abass has also emphasized the importance of Delta state command officers actively fulfilling their duties in light of this new directive.

While acknowledging that this may cause inconvenience for residents and road users, he has urged the public to cooperate with the Police. He stressed that all vehicles using the roads must be properly registered and have visible number plates, warning that non-compliant vehicles will be seized.

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.”
