FCT police has given two weeks to motorists with factory-fitted tints to remove them or face prosecution.
The FCT commissioner of police Femi Ogunbayode said "except with the permission of the appropriate authority which is the Inspector General of police who is designated for the purposes of this Act and for such good cause as may be determined from time to time by the appropriate authority; the permission is granted in two circumstances-on medical ground (those with sight problems) and for security reasons. No person shall cause any glass fitted on a motor vehicle to be tinted, shaded, coloured lightly or thickly, darkened or treated in any way," he said.
"It shall be the duty of the buyer, done or importer of a motor vehicle with tinted, shaded, coloured, darkened or treated glass to change all the glass within a period of 14 days from the date of arrival in Nigeria or date of purchase (whichever is applicable in each circumstance)," the CP said.
He said violators are liable to a fine of N2,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or to both such fine and imprisonment.
