Enugu government bans unauthorised vehicle tinted glass

The Enugu government has banned the unauthorised use of vehicles with tinted glasses to combat the nefarious activities of kidnappers and other criminal elements.

The ban is contained in a statement issued and signed by the secretary to the state government, Chidiebere Onyia, in Enugu.

According to Mr Onyia, the ban aligns with the Enugu government’s determination to combat kidnappers and other criminals.

The ban would take effect on September 4, said the government.

“This is to give owners of vehicles with tinted glasses who did not obtain police tinted permits before the suspension of its issuance by the Nigeria Police Force on June 7, 2021, sufficient time to have them removed or replaced if they are factory fitted, in accordance with the provisions of the law,” stated the top government official.

He added, “Defaulting vehicles shall be impounded by the enforcement task force and shall not be released to their owners until the tinted glasses are removed or replaced and the specified fines paid.”

Mr Onyia reiterated that the ban was to curtail criminal activities and enhance the security and safety of Enugu residents.
