The Gov Nasir El-Rufai led-Kaduna State Government has banned the use of motorcycles for commercial transport, street begging and hawking.

The ban according to Samuel Aruwan, is applicable to residents in Kaduna metropolis and other urban centers in the state.

A statement from the media aide to the governor said credible reports at the disposal of security agencies made it necessary to begin vigorous enforcement of the laws against street begging, hawking and the illegal use of motorcycles as taxis to safeguard lives and property.

“Law enforcement agencies have been directed to begin enforcement of the restrictions against begging, street hawking and ‘okadas/achabas’ in Kaduna town and other cities in the state,” Aruwan said in the statement.
