“We will still go by the Federal government circular in implementing the directive,” Kolawole said.

“The police will not relent in their effort to carry out their duty,” she said, adding that their efforts had already seen a drastic reduction in siren usage.

“I just want to let you know that this current police administration will not condone any act of public disorder, “ she said.

According to the 2012 circular, the people entitled to use sirens are the President, Vice President, Senate President, Speaker, their deputies, state governors and service chiefs.

Kolawole also spoke on the issue of tinted window permits, warning people not to pay as the permit was free.

She urged anybody who was asked for money in exchange for the permits to make a report.

“We are saying that if people were paying before they should not do that any longer,” she said.
