The Nigeria Police Force yesterday directed officers nationwide to stop demanding customs papers from drivers. Acting police spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, via his Twitter, stated: “No policeman should demand your customs papers. Except they are on joint operation, but not just on mere routine checks.”

He also tweeted that “We have suspended issuance of tinted glass permits, so we don’t expect our men to disturb Nigerians on this.

“We are to stop any vehicle with tints, search the vehicles, and its occupants, but not to delay for not having tinted glass permits”.

He asked Nigerians to report officers who delay them for this purpose.
