The Anambra State Government has said that the ban on the use of vehicles with tinted glasses in the state is still in force except for those permitted by law.
The government made the reiteration in a statement by its Commissioner for Information & Public Enlightenment, C. Don Adinuba, on Monday.
The government while reminding its citizens that use of vehicle with tinted glasses remain prohibited, reiterated that the decision is to stem attack on security personnel in the state by gunmen using vehicles with tinted glasses.
It advised those using such vehicles to complement security efforts by winding down all their glasses at each security checkpoint to allow security officers on duty access the persons in the vehicles.
It also advised motorists travelling at night to put on all their inner lights once they approach a checkpoint.
The statement reads partly: “Anambra people as well as travellers passing through our state are reminded that the use of vehicles with tinted glasses is prohibited except those permitted by law enforcement agents.
“Those using such vehicles are required to wind down all their glasses at each security checkpoint so that security officers on duty can see the persons in the vehicles very well.
“It is necessary to wind down all glasses because almost all the attacks in recent times on security officers discharging their legitimate duties in Anambra State have been carried out by criminals in vehicles with darkened glasses. The glasses help to hide criminals, their weapons and ammunition.
“In the same manner, motorists travelling at night are advised to put on all their inner lights once they approach a checkpoint.
“Law-abiding citizens should not hesitate to comply with this simple requirement which aids law enforcement agents in the discharge of their responsibility to society.”
The government, however, assured to remain committed to security of its citizens and making Anambra remain the safest and most peaceful state.
“Our safe environment has enabled an impressive investment flow in our state in the last seven years. The State Government will, therefore, continue to take every step to protect all our people and make life more abundant for them,” the statement added.
