Police to arrest vehicle owners who drive with covered number plates
The Plateau State Command has warned vehicle owners against driving with covered plate numbers.
The Command’s Spokesman, Mr Mathias Tyopev gave the announcement on Wednesday, stating that armed robbers and kidnappers have taken advantage of the act which now poses a threat to security in the State.
”The Plateau state Command has observed with dismay the negative trend in recent times whereby some individuals, politicians, government dictionaries among others cover their vehicle plate numbers while driving on the highway and within the town.
“Some people are also in the habit of using vehicles with tinted glasses without any authorization from the police.
This has made fighting kidnapping and armed robbery by the police very difficult.
“The Commissioner of Police, therefore, warn members of the public to desist from such acts.
“Road users are expected to comply with road traffic act as the command shall by the next two weeks commence enforcement across the state” the statement read.
