Following the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba’s directive on reclaiming of vehicles in police custody, the Assistant Inspector General of Police in-charge of Zone 13 Ukpo; AIG Umar Musa Muri has ordered the Commissioners of Police in Anambra and Enugu States Police Command to evacuate all impounded, accident and unregistered exhibit vehicles from police formations within their States respectively due to the incessant embarrassment, nuisance and disgusting sight caused by stacking of these vehicles at police stations.
The AIG warned that the zone will no longer tolerate the practice of stockpiling vehicles recovered from crime scenes or which their ownership is being contested parked in police premises. He calls on the rightful owners to reclaim their vehicles as soon as possible.
The AIG therefore, directs that the CP’s should inform the heads of Police formations to embark on due process in carrying out the needful evaluation and release of such vehicles in the mentioned categories on bond to their owners as this is part of efforts being put in place by IGP Usman Alkali’s administration to ensuring conducive working environment for its personnel and also to set in motion such required strategies in combating crime and criminality in the country.
He thereby assured the good people of Anambra and Enugu States that decongesting the police formations would be a great operational advantage to the force in effectively dispensing its policing responsibilities and further urges all concerned members of the public to approach various police formations to claim their vehicles with proper means of identification/ proof of ownership.
