BAROTA Seizes 31 Motorcycles, 29 Tricycles in Bauchi

The Bauchi state road transport agency says it has successfully confiscated thirty-one commercial motorcycles, twenty-nine Keke-Napeps and three vehicles in their normal operation as usual, over the violation of the law in Bauchi metropolis.

The controller general of the agency, retired Air Commodore Tijjani Baba Gamawa stated this during his interview with pressmen in Bauchi yesterday.

Tijjani Baba Gamawa said those thinking there is no law in Bauchi are deceiving themselves, noting that the law would take its course.

He also said most of the commercial motorcyclists are coming from neighbouring states, warning that the banning of commercial motorcycles in the Bauchi metropolis is still in force saying the exercise will continue.

Barota boss added that some states have already banned the use of Okada for security purposes, calling all those people coming back to Bauchi to continue their activities to change their decision or would face the full wrath of the law.

Gamawa equally calls on drivers to avoid using illegal motor packs for their businesses, saying anyone arrest should fine N30,000 before releasing his vehicle.

Barota boss added that the security situation in some states is so bad while commending the Bauchi state government under the leadership of Governor Bala Abdulkadir Muhammad on his efforts to work hand in hand with the security agency to protect the lives and property of people of the state.

He also called on Bauchi citizens to give their maximum cooperation to the agency to sanitize the transport activities in Bauchi metropolis and the state at large.
