The Katsina State Police Command has said that the ban on motorcycle movements from 10pm to 6am within the city will be reinforced by its operatives.


The command’s spokesman, Gambo Isa, said this in a statement made available to Newsmen on Monday.


He also stated that the restriction in other Local Government Areas, especially the frontline areas, remained from 6am to 6am.


Isa also stated that the enforcement was necessary due to the recent threat to security caused by terrorists and other criminals using motorcycles.


In his words, “I am directed to draw the attention of the general public that the ban on the movement of motorcycles from 10p.m-6a.m in Katsina city is still in force.”


“While in the frontline LGAs from 6p.m to 6a.m. It was temporarily lifted to ease movements during Ramadan.” he said.


Recall that the state government had banned motorcycle movements due to insecurity.


The Governor of Katsina, Aminu Masari, however, lifted the restriction to ease movement during the month of Ramadan.
