Anambra state commissioner of Police, Mustapha Dandaura, has ordered the arrest of commercial shuttle buses or tricycle operators with tinted glasses or curtains in the state.
The CP who gave the order on Tuesday in a statement in Awka, also ordered that such vehicles or tricycles be impounded.
He further asked residents of the state to avoid patronizing them in order not to fall victims of their nefarious activities.
He said, “Information at the disposal of the Anambra State Police Command revealed that hoodlums in the State are using commercial vehicles especially shuttle buses and KEKE NAPEP with tinted glasses and thick curtains (which shield their interiors) in Awka, Onitsha, Ekwulobia, Oko and other densely populated areas to rob unsuspecting passengers and dispose them of their valuables without being detected by the law enforcement agencies.
“In view of the foregoing, the Commissioner of Police CP Mustapha Dandaura has ordered with immediate effect, the arrest of any commercial vehicle especially shuttle bus driver or Keke riders found operating with tinted glasses or curtains in the State and such vehicles/Keke be impounded by the Police.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Command will commence intensive stop and search Operations to enforce this order to the letter.”
