Wakadaily reports that, IGP on Wednesday banned the use of SPY number plates nationwide, irrespective of whether it is authorized, or not, as all authorizations are hereby revoked indefinitely.
“Road users who also parade faded number plates should endeavour to replace them with new ones so as to avoid impounding their vehicles.
Oyeyemi noted, “the implications of the continued use of faded and other unauthorized vehicle number plates to national security.
“The use of the SPY and other unauthorized number plates to continually violate traffic rules and regulations must be brought to a halt, hence the directive given to commanding officers to brace up and ensure that they give adequate priority to the enforcement,” he said.
