“He noted this measure being part of his administration’s renewed crime fighting strategy, is aimed at curtailing the activities of criminally minded persons who disguise in police uniform to perpetuate their nefarious activities.

“However, he has approved the use of a newly designed grey and black trouser as the new uniform to be worn by spy police officers nationwide.”
