Katsina Govt Bans Motorcyles, Tricycles To Curb Insecurity

In a bid to curb insecurity, the Katsina State Government has placed a ban on the use of commercial motorcycles and tricycles in the night in 19 local government areas.

This was made known by the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Nasiru Mu’azu, in a statement on Sunday.

In the statement, the commissioner explained that the ban is with effect from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

According to the statement, the order affects local government areas fully affected by banditry and other related crimes.

“Among them (local government areas) are Sabuwa, Dandume, Funtua, Faskari and Bakori, Kankara, Danja, Kafur, Malumfashi, Musawa, Matazu, Danmusa, Safana, Dutsinma, Kurfi, Charanchi, Jibia, Batsari and Kankia,” the statement read.

He explained that members of the public should understand that the purpose of the order is to restore permanent peace in the affected areas being tortured by the bandits.

In another news, unknown gunmen have killed one Abdulkareem Kwaren in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

According to a relative of the deseased, Mallam Lawal Kwaren Mai Saje, his brother was returning from his farm Saturday evening when the terrorists on motorcycles shot him and he died on the spot.

He disclosed that the farm was not too far from the village, saying that though the bandits did not enter the community, the villagers have fled their homes for fear of being attacked by the terrorists.

“You know that the bandits can operate at will and at any moment of the day in the local government area. So, we are not surprised to hear that they attacked one village or another.

“Attacks on villages in the area are no longer new to us and the state government and security operatives are pretending as if the area is being protected by them.”

All efforts to get reaction from the state police command proved unsuccessful as the numbers of the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, ASP Yazeed Abdulahi, were unreasonable as at the time of filing this report.
