Operation Velvet: Lagos Police Command Give One Month Grace Period.

The authorities of the Lagos State Police Command have suspended the ongoing operation velvet for a period of one month with effect from Tuesday 30/10/18 to enable motor vehicle and motorcycle owner’s time to regularize their documents.

The operation, aimed at enforcing all relevant traffic laws to restore orderliness on our roads and highways, was put on hold for a month period based on the appeal of the executive governor of the state, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and the hon. members of the state house of assembly.

However, the Command wishes to warn all road users that the grace period should not be interpreted as a period of lawlessness on the city roads.

A statement by Lagos Police spokesman, CSP Chike Oti said, “It is a time allowed to get the vehicle documents and necessary permits together”.

It warns that the Command will continue to enforce laws against driving on BRT lanes, parking at unauthorized places thereby causing gridlock and driving against traffic (one way).
