Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, Abubakar Lawal fdc, issued this command via the state police command bulletin signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, dated 14th July, 2022.
The Ban the CP stated is solely aimed at strengthening security in the State and the nation at large and all affected member of the public called to revert back to their original registered number plates;
“All Police Officers and those of other Security Agencies attached to VIPs who use the SPY Number Plates in the State are to ensure prompt compliance with the directive or otherwise risk being arrested for violation of the order,” the CP orders.
He further cautions enforcing Police Operatives against disrespect of citizens’ rights while soliciting cooperation of all and sundry in the interest of the good of the nation.
