The Nigeria Police High Command has extended the deadline for revalidation of tinted glass permit and firearms licence to July 32, 2016.
Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, disclosed this in a statement issued today in Abuja.
She said that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, has directed all State Commands Commissioners of Police to stay enforcement of the 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,” the statement said.
It said that the IGP, therefore, urged members of the public who are yet to obtain the automated tinted glass permit and firearms licecence to seize the opportunity of the extension to complete necessary formalities for them to key into the electronic platform.
“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,” ACP Kolawole said.
