The ONLY 3 documents Nigerian car owners must tender to Police, nothing more 

This Sunday morning, the acting Police Public Relations Officer (FPRO), CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi greeted Nigerians with a “shine your eyes” message on what documents car owners in Nigeria are required by law to tender to the police on demand at any checkpoint or routine patrol.

Adejobi took to Microblogging platform, Twitter on Sunday morning and stated via his official Twitter handle that the only three (3) documents car owners in Nigeria are required by law to be tendered to police are:

  1. Vehicle license
  2. Drivers license
  3. Certificate of insurance

“On what you need to tender to the police on demand at any check point or on routine patrol, it’s just ur vehicle licence, drivers licence, and certificate of insurance, esp for private car owners” he tweeted.

“Any policeman demanding for more, is a deviant and he must be dealt with. If not, many Nigerians will suffer from him and his likes. Don’t die in silence, speak out to save yourself and others. I will still be on this issue soon,” the tweet continued.

“No policeman should demand your customs papers. No. Except they are on joint operation, but not just on mere routine checks. And for now, we have suspended issuance of tinted glass permits, so we don’t expect our men to disturb Nigerians on this.”

On vehicles with tints, he noted that the police are to stop any vehicle with tints, search the vehicles, and its occupants, but not to delay him for not having tinted glass permits.

“Report them if you are so delayed so that we ask them questions,” he wrote on the microblogging platform.

On allocation of number papers, the acting FPRO added that police don’t demand for such aside the only three documents he earlier mentioned.

“Please take note that police don’t demand for allocation of number papers, it is not necessary, since a vehicle has been registered, all you need to have with you as mentioned are vehicle licence, certificate of insurance and drivers licence. Simple.” the tweet reads.
