Policemen have no right to ask for Custom papers, others, says Force spokesman – Nexus News
Police authorities have declared that policemen have no right to request for Customs papers from motorists except when they are on joint patrol with officials of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS).
They also noted that policemen should not demand for allocation of number plates from motorists.
The police reiterated that policemen should not disturb car owners for tinted permits since the exercise has been temporarily suspended.
Acting Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Olumuyiwa Adejobi, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), said this in his Twitter account.
He said: “No policeman should demand your Customs papers. No; except they are on joint operation, but not just on routine checks. And for now, we have suspended issuance of tinted glass permits. So, we don’t expect our men to disturb Nigerians for this.

“We are to stop any vehicle with tints, search the vehicles, and its occupants, but not to delay him for not having tinted glass permits. Report them if you are so delayed so that we ask them questions.
“Please, take note that the police don’t demand for allocation of number papers. It’s not necessary. Since a vehicle has been registered, all you need to have with you are a vehicle license, certificate of insurance and driver’s license. Simple.
“Any policeman demanding for more is a deviant and he must be dealt with. If not, many Nigerians will suffer from him and his likes. Don’t die in silence. Speak out to save yourself and others.”
