The last has definitely not been heard of the banning of commercial motorcycles in Kano State. With the commencement of the new law, a strong warning has been issued that any motorcycles found carrying passengers within the state would be arrested and the motorcycles would equally be destroyed.
This warning was contained in a statement signed on Thursday, in Kano, by the state police command and signed by the state commissioner of Police (CP) Mr Ibrahim Idris.
The statement also made it known that a task force has been formed comprising the Police, Joint Task Force (JTF), other security agencies as well as state established organisations such as Hisbah, Vigilante group and Karota. And these agencies have been jointly directed to enforce this ban with effect from January 24, 2013 by 6 a.m.
