The Inspector-General of Police (IG) Usman Alkali Baba has said vehicles with factory-fitted tinted glasses are exempted from getting police permit.
The police boss gave the clarification during a virtual interaction with selected journalists on Monday, July 12.
“Factory-fitted tinted glasses are not affected. They are not the ones we are quarreling about because you can see through most of the factory-fitted glasses. If you want them to open, you can then ask them to open. We are talking about the ones you cannot even identify, whether there’s someone inside or not.”he said
Asked what the police were doing to ensure that operatives enforcing these laws understood the directive, Baba said the force is making efforts to educate the cops on the policy for effective implementation.
He also said plans were underway for the police to have a centralized database as well as other security agencies that would aid crime prevention and control.
As part of measures to combat crime in the country, the police boss announced the suspension of the issuance of tinted-glass permits across the country.
