In a message from the Nigerian Police force public relations department that we saw on Twitter in a thread by the Acting Public Relations Officer at the Force Head Quarters, Abuja, Muyiwa Adejobi (@princemoye1), Police officers at any check point or on routine patrol with an exception on the grounds of if they are a joint military operation should not demand your customs papers, demand for your number plate allocation papers, disturb you (Nigerians) for having tinted glass (for now police have suspended issuance of tinted glass permits).
The police are to simply demand for your vehicle license, certificate of insurance (especially for private car owners) and drivers license.
If police officers are demanding for more, they are rogues and must be dealt with. Please report them so that many other Nigerians will not suffer from their likes. Don’t die in silence, speak out to save yourself and others. Contact the Complaint Response Unit (CRU) of the Nigerian Police:

In the words of, Muyiwa Adejobi (@princemoye1)
No police officer should demand your customs papers. No. Except they are on joint operation, but not just on mere routine checks. And for now, we have suspended issuance of tinted glass permit, so we don’t expect our men to disturb Nigerians on this.
We are to stop any vehicle with tints, search d vehicles, and its occupants, but not to delay him for not having tinted glass permits. Report them if u are so delayed so that we ask them questions.
On what you need to tender to the police on demand at any check point or on routine patrol, it’s just ur vehicle licence, drivers licence, and certificate of insurance, especially for private car owners.
Please take note that d police don’t demand for allocation of number paper, its not necessary, since a vehicle has been registered, all you need to have with you is the 3 i mentioned, vehicle licence, certificate of insurance and drivers licence. Simple. Ire o
Any policeman demanding for more, is a deviant and he must be dealt with. If not, many Nigerians will suffer from him and his likes. Dont die in silence, speak out to save yourself and others. I will still on this issue soon. Enjoy your sunday..ire o..
