Katsina State Government has ordered the outright ban of the sales of Boxer/Kasier motorcycles across the 34 local government areas in the state.
The newly deployed Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to Katsina State, Mr Ali Tanimu disclosed this during his familiarization visit to members of the Correspondents Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Katsina.
Mr Tanimu said the directives came from the state Governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari based on the ground that, Bandits and Criminals are using the Boxer Motorcycles for their criminal activities.
He also disclosed that, as from the end of this month (August) all Tricycles in the state would not be allowed to be using black curtains.
“An enforcement to that effect will start at the end of the month and failure to obey the rules will be arrests and prosecution,” Mr Ali Tanimu has said.
The Katsina state Sector Commander therefore, charged Tricycles owners to talk to their operators on that.
Mr Ali Tanimu however, appealed to Public to be extra careful during the forthcoming Ed-el- kabir (Sallah) period by regulating their speeds and make their Waivers working due to rainfall.
Sector Commander Ali Tanimu said he was at the Correspondents Chapel of the NUJ to solicit support from the Members in order to have mutual respect and understanding.
Chairman of the Correspondents Chapel, Alhaji Abdulhamid Sabo of the Blue Print Newspaper assured of cordial relationship.
“We will continue to partner with the FRSC in the state and your visit is the first in the history of this Chapel and it has added more glad between the chapel and the Corps,” Alhaji Abdulhamid Sabo emphasized.
