The Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Headquarters, has ordered officers across the country to stop demanding for Customs papers from motorists.
The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Muyiwa Adejobi, who conveyed the directive via twitter handle, said officers are only expected to stop vehicles and search it as well as the occupants, added that the Police authorities have suspended issuance of tinted glass permits.
“No policeman should demand your customs papers. Except they are on joint operation, but not just on mere routine checks.“
“We have suspended issuance of tinted glass permits, so we don’t expect our men to disturb Nigerians on this.”
“We are to stop any vehicle with tints, search the vehicles, and its occupants, but not to delay for not having tinted glass permits.”
Adejobi urged the members of the public to report personnel who delay them on the excuse of not having the documents.
