Ogun Police Target Politicians’ Vehicles With Covered Number Plates
Police say they will begin a clampdown on vehicles, particularly those of politicians and political parties in Ogun State, whose number plates are covered.
The State Police Command says it suspected owners of vehicles whose number plates are covered of having criminal intention.
Spokesman of the State Police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi says every vehicle in the state must be identified with their number plates.
According to Oyeyemi, the State Police commissioner, Lanre Bankole had directed the Area Police Commanders and Divisional Police Officers (DPO) to go after such vehicles.
The police, according to him, has noted that various political parties are now in the habit of covering the number plate of their vehicles, making it difficult for police to identify their registration number.
Oyeyemi added that some of the parties used their sticker in the place of number plates on their vehicles, warning that such would not be tolerated in the state.
