The Police in FCT on Monday constituted a six-member taskforce on the abuse of Supernumerary (SPY) number plate and siren by unauthorised persons in the territory.
The Inspector General of Police recently directed all holders of SPY number plate and siren to return them to the Force Transport Officer ( FTO) and apply for re-validation.
