Commissioner of Police, Anambra State Command, Mr. Hosea Karma, yesterday called on the public to desist from the usage of siren and also refrain from covering their plates saying that his men have started arresting unauthorized siren users in the state.

He said that so far, a large number of sirens have been confisticated with the owners charged to court but he did not disclose the names of the defaulters.

According to the Police Commissioner, sirens should only be used in periods of emergency, like in times of fire outbreak, when ambulances are taking a critical patient to hospital and by state governors, warning that there is no basis for anybody to be harassing people out of the roads as if the road is their private property.

Anambra is reputed to be a place where sirens are indiscriminately used by people, including politicians, businessmen, money bags and even university vice chancellors.

CP Karma while also said that those in the habit of covering their number plates will not be spared by the and warned against the collection of revenue on the country’s highways by all manner of people saying that anybody caught in the act, no matter his organisation, would face the full wrath of the law as that attitude only portrays one as having skeleton in his/her cupboard.

He however assured the people of Anambra State of a total crime-free Christmas season as the command was prepared to ensure that criminals were kept off the state.
