Police ban use of motorcycles in Adamawa

The Adamawa State Command of the Nigeria Police has banned the use of motorcycles in all the 21 local government areas of the state.

The command said in a press statement Tuesday morning that the ban was informed by rising crime rate across the state.

The statement which was signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the state, SP Othman Abubakar, said, “This has become necessary because of the incessant use of such motorcycles in the commission of heinous crimes such as kidnapping, armed banditry, communal clashes and other criminal activities in the state.”

The statement added that the police would by the announcement of the ban go all out on aggressive patrol and arrest of defaulters.
