Benue State Police Command has said covering of vehicle plate numbers by motorists and motorcycle owners is an offence and will not be allowed in the state any longer.

This was contained in a statement by the Benue State Police Command, PPRO, SP Catherene Anene.

Anene said the practice of covering number plate has become increasingly prevalent in the state, posing a significant security threat.

The PPRO said criminals could take advantage of the practice to perpetuate crime and get away with it.

According to the statement, the Commissioner of Police, Benue State Command, CP Hassan Steve Yabanet, has ordered all Area Commanders, Tactical Commanders and Divisional Police Officers to impound such vehicles for investigation and prosecution.

Motorists and motorcyclists, the statement insisted, were advised to ensure that their vehicle registration number plates remain clearly visible at all times while driving within the state to avoid any inconvenience that may be caused by the enforcement process.

The statement urged all to contribute to the promotion of public safety and the maintenance of law and order in Benue State.
