On account of the prevailing insecurity in the country, the police said they will soon reintroduce permits for vehicles with tinted glass across the country.
They noted that the crimes being perpetrated using tinted glass, especially by young people, were no longer acceptable.
The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who disclosed this during an interview on Wednesday, said some states had also complained to the police that people were using such vehicles to commit crimes.
He, however, stressed that the committee set up by the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, would soon conclude its work and submit its report, after which the decision would be taken.
Adejobi had on March 20, 2022, announced the decision of the police authorities under the former IG, Usman Baba, to suspend the issuance of tinted permits.
He, however, noted that the police are still free to stop and search any vehicle with tinted glass, but that they had been directed not to demand for the permit.
Many Nigerians had heaved a sigh of relief after the permit was suspended, given the usual harassment from policemen. However, according to Adejobi, the permit would soon be re-introduced to further check crime across the country.
