The Rivers State Police Command has prohibited unauthorized persons in the state from using sirens, revolving lights, spy and covered plate numbers.

Friday Eboka, the state police commissioner, stated that the ban was necessary because some people were committing crimes in the state with the listed items.

Eboka noted that the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali, had previously warned against the indiscriminate use of sirens, revolving lights, spy and covered plate numbers without the necessary approvals.

He also stated that a team had been formed to enforce the ban.

Nnamdi Omoni, the command’s spokesperson, stated that a taskforce led by ACP Jepthan Nengi has been formed to ensure full compliance with the ban.

Omoni reiterated that no effort will be spared in enforcing the ban and warned violators to remove prohibited facilities from their vehicles within one week.
