Series of attacks by unidentified gunmen in Ebonyi State have forced Governor Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru to ban the use of tinted glass vehicles, sirens, while at the sametime outlawing use of cars without plate number.

The governor has also ordered law enforcement agencies in the state to apprehend offenders and impound their vehicles.

He said that the impounded such vehicles could only be released through a clearance from his office.

This was contained in a statement signed by his chief press secretary after the killing of police officers and civilians by unidentified gunmen in Abakaliki, the state capital, at the weekend.
