NewsPolicePolice Ban Personnel For Demanding Customs Papers, Tinted Permits From Drivers

ABUJA — The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has ordered personnel across the States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja to stop demanding customs papers and tinted permits on the highways from drivers.

CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, Acting Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO) stated this on Twitter, stating that the issuance of tinted glass permits remained suspended for now.

He urged members of the public to report personnel who delay them on the excuse of not having the documents.

 “Officers were only expected to stop such vehicles, search them, as well as the occupants.

“No policeman should demand your customs papers. Except they are on joint operation, but not just on mere routine checks

“We have suspended the issuance of tinted glass permits, so we don’t expect our men to disturb Nigerians on this.

“We are to stop any vehicle with tints, search the vehicles, and its occupants, but not to delay for not having tinted glass permits,” Adejobi said.
