THE Ebonyi State Police Command has banned the use of sirens, tinted glass and covering of vehicle number plates by unauthorised persons.

The state Commissioner of Police, Phillip Sule Maku, gave the order in a statement, signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Loveth Odah, in Abakaliki.

The CP said the Police was committed to restoring sanity in the state by arresting and persecuting offenders accordingly.

He reminded motorcycle operators in the state that the law banning their operation beyond 7pm was still in force.

He further warned that anyone caught violating the order would have his motorcycle impounded, noting that the State Government-approved fine must also be paid.

The statement said, “The attention of the Commissioner of Police, Ebonyi State, CP Phillip Sule Maku, psc, fdc, has been drawn to the excessive abuse and illegal use of Sirens, Tinted Glass and covering of Vehicles Number plates by unauthorised persons.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the ban on the indiscriminate use of these items is still in force.

“Consequently, the CP has therefore warned that all those who flout any or all of these rules should desist forthwith, to avoid embarrassment, as police operatives have been given the onerous responsibility of restoring sanity in the State by arresting and persecuting offenders accordingly.

“Similarly, the Commissioner of Police wishes to also remind motorcycle operators in the State that the law banning their operation beyond 7pm is still in force.”
