As the Nigeria Police High Command extends the deadline for re-validation of tinted glass permit and firearms licence to 31st July, 2016, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, has directed all State Commands Commissioners of Police to stay enforcement of law on tinted glass permit and firearms licence until the expiration of the deadline.
The IGP, who restated that revalidation of tinted glass permit is free of charge, warned Policemen against extortion and harassment of motorists over revalidating their permits and licences.
He, therefore, urged members of the public who are yet to obtain the automated tinted glass permit and firearms licence to seize the opportunity of the extension to complete necessary formalities for them to key into the electronic platform.
A statement by Force spokesperson, ACP Olabisi Kolawole on Wednesday said the IGP wishes to reassure the public of the commitment of the Force to the provision of round-the-clock security for the teeming citizens of the country.
“Citizens are further enjoined to continue to support and assist the Police in its constitutional task of safeguarding the nation,” it added
