Abubakar made the clarification on Friday while speaking at a meeting with Assistant Inspectors-General of Police in charge of the 12 zonal commands in Nigeria.
He said that the meeting was to review security challenges, including terrorism, kidnapping, cultism and communal clashes in parts of the country in order to strategise on how to address the challenges.
The IG said: “obtaining tinted glass permit is free of charge, there is no amount of money written there for anybody to pay. Motorists should not allow any policeman, anywhere to subject them to paying charges that are not officially, legally and legitimately stated,’’ Abubakar stated.
The clarification of the IG comes against the backdrop of renewed clampdown on motorists driving vehicles with tinted glasses nationwide.
