Anambra Govt  Seeks Community Collaboration In  Fight Against  Crime

NigeriaThe Anambra State Government has banned the use of motorcycles, tricycles and shuttle buses in Anambra State between seven pm and six am for the period of one month in the first instance.

The ban, according to a statement by the Secretary to the State Government Professor Solo Chukwulobelu is as a result of the need to improve security in the State and address observed incidents of crimes using Tricycles, motorcycles and shuttle buses.

The statement also reiterated that the earlier ban on the use of motorcycles in greater Onitsha and Awka areas during the day and night, remains in full force, and that any motorcycle found within the areas will be impounded and forfeited;

It also stated that shuttle buses are henceforth banned from using tinted glasses or curtains while plying on Anambra roads while other vehicles, either with factory-fitted tinted glasses or plain glasses must wind down while approaching any security check point in the State to avoid embarrassment;

The statement further directed full mobilization of community youths and stakeholders across the State to take ownership of security in their immediate environments and assist the Police and other Law enforcement Agents to enforce these directives and quickly restore law and order in the State, warning that henceforth, any community where Keke is used to rob or commit any crime, the use of Keke will be banned totally in that area and the union exco sanctioned, same measures that will be applied in the case of shuttle bus and motorcycles.
