Ebonyi Govt. bans use of tinted car glasses, sirens



The Ebonyi Government has announced a ban on the use of tinted car glasses in any part of the state.

The state government also banned the use of vehicles without number plates and licences, as well as the use of sirens by unauthorised persons.

The announcement of the ban is contained in a statement issued by Gov. Francis Nwifuru on Friday and signed by Dr Monday Uzor, Chief Press Secretary to the governor.

The governor said that the measures were part of strategies to curb crime in the state and protect the lives and property of residents.

The statement read in part: “Nobody, no matter how highly placed, is authorised to use tinted glasses and sirens in any part of the state.

“It has also become a grievous offence for anybody in any part of the state to use vehicles without plate numbers and licences.

“Accordingly, law enforcement agencies have been directed to apprehend offenders and impound their vehicles. Such offender(s) must be properly interrogated and such vehicles can only be released with clearance from the Office of the Governor.

“Residents of the state and the general public are advised to adhere strictly to these directives.” (
