Law restricting use of motorcycle takes full effect in Katsina
The law restricting the movement of motorcycles from 7 pm to 6 am in Katsina State has begun working with full force from tonight, Katsina Post gathered.
Recall that the Executive Governor of Katsina State, Rt Hon Aminu Bello Masari had on Thursday, signed a new law banning the use of motorcycles in the State from 7 pm to 6 am daily.
The law, however, excludes members of the law enforcement agencies such as the military, police, civil defense, road safety corp, immigration, customs, and NDLEA.
The government took the decision because of the discovery that most of the kidnappings were being carried out by tricycles and motorcycles in not only the eight Front-line local governments but the entire state according to the state commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of the State, Barr. Ahmad El-Marzuq.
The violators of the law would be jailed for up to one year and an option of fine or both as prescribed by the penal code.
