The Osun State Police command has warned public office holders in the state to desist from covering their vehicles number plate to avoid being arrested.

According to Opalola, only the governor, deputy governor and speaker have the right to cover their number plate.

She added that no individual either elected public office holder or private persons have the right to cover their vehicles plate number, saying anyone caught would be arrested.

According to the police spokesperson, with the present security situation in the State, indiscriminate covering of vehicle registration numbers constitute security risk, hence, it is outlawed.

“Anybody seen apart from these three persons, can be arrested. We cannot afford to joke with security issues in the state any longer” she added.
