Oyo Police Begins Clampdown On Vehicles With Sirens, Revolving Lights And Covered Number Plates





Oyo Police Command begins clampdown on vehicles with sirens, revolving lights and covered number plates.

The Oyo State Police Command have commenced the process to impound all vehicles that are illegally using sirens, revolving lights, spy and covered number plates in the state.

This was made known in a statement issued on Friday by the Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo State Police Command, Superintendent of Police, Olugbenga Fadeyi.


The clampdown in Oyo comes two weeks after the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, directed the Commissioners of Police in the 36 states and FCT to impound all vehicles that are illegally using the aforementioned facilities.

The IG stated that :

“All vehicles found to have spy number plates not duly issued, using sirens, or revolving lights without permit or having covered number plates, will be promptly impounded”

He added that :

“These practices are illegal and pose monumental security risks to the country and its people”.

During the briefing, the IG commended the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, for personally taking charge against unauthorised concealment of number plates and other related offences.

The fight against the illegal use of these facilities is not been carried out by the police alone. Recall that a month ago, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, says it is out to prosecute abusers of sirens and convoy offenders across the federation.

Boboye said that FRSC will work with the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to ensure offenders are prosecuted accordingly.
