The Police Spokesperson in Jos said clamping down on the vehicles is in line with the order of the Inspector General of Police.
The police in Plateau State on Monday began clamping down on vehicles with tinted classes in Jos, the state capital, the spokesperson of the state police command, Felicia Anslem, said.
The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, had given an order to clamp down on tinted vehicles saying that such cars are security threats.
Ms. Anslem said she was complying with the order and that a number of cars in Jos have been impounded.
She said such cars were being used to convey arms adding that security men at check points in the state have had a difficult time sorting out such cars.
She said the appeal for the removal of tinted glasses were issued since last year, but many car owners refused to adhere to the directive, hence the resolve to arresting offenders.
Ms. Anslem said that an offender would have to apply to the office of the Inspector General of Police before the impounded vehicle is released.
She, however, said that no monitory fine was attached to the offense.
