The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has ordered a total ban on all use of Police SPY Vehicle Number Plates by vehicle owners across the states of the federation without exception.
This was contained in a statement by Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, yesterday.
The statement was titled, ‘Internal security: IGP bans use of spy number plates nationwide … Directs reversal to original registered number plates, seizure of SPY plates’.
According to the statement the ban is irrespective of whether the number plate is authorized, or not, as all authorizations are hereby revoked indefinitely.
He further noted that the order is necessary to forestall the continuous disregard for traffic rules and regulations and other extant laws guiding road use by individuals hiding under the privileges of SPY police number plates.
