The FCT Police Commissioner, Bala Ciroma, has disclosed that a joint security team has been launched to clamp down on unauthorised use of covered plate numbers and tinted glass across the territory.
Ciroma, who stated this in a statement by the command spokesperson, ASP Maryam Yusuf, in Abuja yesterday, stressed that the command was determined to rid the FCT of crimes.

He said the operation has become extremely necessary due to the recent security threat analysis conducted by the joint team, which he said revealed that criminal gangs now execute their nefarious activities using tinted vehicles with covered number plates.
“And therefore, the team wishes to sound a note of warning to residents using unauthorised covered number plates and tinted vehicles within the FCT. They should henceforth desist from the criminal act as violators will be arrested and prosecuted accordingly,” he said.
Ciroma, therefore, implored residents of the FCT to cooperate with security agencies and adhere to the directive.
