The commissioner of police, Anambra State Police Command, CP Echeng Echeng, Thursday, established an enforcement team to ensure full recovery of all police spy plate numbers in the state.
This is sequel to the order issued by the inspector general of police, which banned possession and usage of police SPY vehicle number plates across the federation.
Commissioner Echeng, while addressing the command’s area commanders, divisional police officers and other heads of formations, tasked the officers to give full support to the enforcement team in their efforts at enforcing the order.
DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, the command’s public relations officer, in a release made available to our correspondent in Awka, said, “The CP reemphasized that the order was part of deliberate measures aimed at strengthening internal security in the country, and preventing continuous disregard for traffic rules and regulations and other extant laws guiding road-users by individuals hiding under the privileges of SPY police number plates.”
The CP also enjoined the general public to ensure voluntary compliance with the directives or risk being arrested for its violation, Ikenga added.
