FCT Police Commissioner, Joseph Mbu Threatens To Impound Vehicles With Tinted Glass

The FCT Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu has  ordered owners of tinted vehicles without approval to remove them from the road within 24 hours  or face the wrath of the law.

Mbu also warned drivers of vehicles without number plates to park their cars at home or risk having them impounded, noting that unregistered vehicles would not be permitted to ply Abuja roads.

The CP told journalists on Monday in Abuja that he has reviewed the security strategy in the FCT, adding that new measures would be put in place to protect travellers on the Abuja-Gwagwalada Expressway.

He said, "Nobody should be found driving a vehicle without number plates or with tinted glasses without the approval of the IG; we are going to enforce this law as from Wednesday. Also hawkers are banned from coming to the city area to hawk as well as keke napep.

"Am appealing to you to respect the law, we are expecting some international dignitaries for the Centenary celebration and it wont portray us well before the world to see us this way."

The police boss noted that the police command would not condone hidden or sealed vehicle number plates, stressing that all vehicles must have clearly designated number plates issued by the Federal Road Safety Corps.

Mbu pledged to end car snatching in the Federal Capital Territory, adding that he had met with the Divisional Police Officers and Divisional Crime Officers to fashion out ways to end crime in the FCT.

The CP explained that the command would be utilizing the community policing principle to get Abuja residents to key into the police strategy of a crime-free city.
