Anambra State Police Commissioner (CP) Echeng Eworo Echeng has directed the recovery of all Police Spy Plate numbers across the state.
Echeng, who gave the directive in a press statement released by the Police Spokesman DSP Ikenga Tochukwu Anthony, also set up an enforcement team to ensure that the mission is accomplished.
The press statement reads, “In furtherance of the IGP’S recent order banning possession and usage of Police SPY Vehicle Number Plates across the country, the Commissioner of Police, Anambra State, CP Echeng Echeng has established an enforcement team to ensure full recovery of all such plate numbers in Anambra State.
The CP while addressing the Command’s Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and other heads of formations in the Command, tasked the officers to give full support to the enforcement team in their efforts at enforcing the order to the latter.
The CP reemphasised 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 similarly enjoined the general public, especially Ndi Anambra to ensure voluntary compliance with the directives or risk being arrested for its violation. “
