Any time you are stopped, questioned and asked to show proof of your tinted permit renewal, just show them this Bounce News story, and pictures/letter.

This is because the Nigerian Police has told its officers nationwide, to stop the harassment and extortion of motorists over renewal of vehicle tinted permit.


The development is as a result of the motion titled “need to save motorists from harassment and extortion by the police in the guise of renewal of vehicle tinted glass permit,” sponsored by Hon. Henry Daniel Ofongo (PDP, Bayelsa), and filed at the House of Representatives.

The Reps resolved that the Inspector General of Police should stop the directive on the renewal of the tinted permit, and the police has issued the directive.

So guys, have fun with your ride, but you may still want to be careful.
