The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Usman Baba, has said that the ban placed on the issuance of permits to vehicles with tinted glasses is not directed at vehicles with factory-fitted ones. Baba made the clarification on Tuesday during a brief virtual media interaction with some journalists.

He said that the decision was taken to stop the abuses associated with the use of tinted glasses and SPY number plates by unauthorized members of the public.

The IGP had in June announced the immediate suspension of tinted glass permits and issuance of SPY number plates in the country.

According to him, some mischievous persons have capitalized on the license to commit heinous crimes. The police boss acknowledged the complaint that his men were taking advantage of the directive on the tinted glass permits to harass innocent car owners with factory-fitted tinted glasses.

He announced that an enforcement mechanism that would enforce the standardized process of issuance of SPY number plates and permit for tinted glasses would be implemented across the country. “If you look at the vehicles with factory-fitted tinted glasses, you can still see through them and if there is any need for the driver to open the doors of such vehicles, the security officers will know.


“Those that are not factory-fitted are completely covered so that no one knows who or what they carry. Those are the ones the ban is targeted at,” he said.
