The Nigeria Police Force on Sunday once again warned policemen to desist from demanding for customs papers from motorists nationwide.
It also warned officers to stop demanding tinted glass permit from drivers.
Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, gave the warning on behalf of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) in series of tweets on Sunday.
Adejobi was however quick to add that the only way police officers can demand for customs papers is when they are on joint patrol with customs officers.
He clarified that tinted glass permit remains suspended across the country thus its officers should stop demanding or arresting drivers without such permit.
According to him, “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.
“On what you need to tender to the police on demand at any check point or on routine patrol, it’s just your vehicle licence, drivers licence, and certificate of insurance, especially for private car owners.
“We are to stop any vehicle with tints, search the vehicles, and its occupants, but not to delay him for not having tinted glass permits. Report them if u are so delayed so that we ask them questions.
“Any policeman demanding for more, is a deviant and he must be dealt with. If not, many Nigerians will suffer from him and his likes. Don’t die in silence, speak out to save yourself and others. I will still on this issue soon. Enjoy your Sunday.”
