The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Taraba Command says it is sustaining efforts at sensitization and enforcement of registration for unregistered motorcycle operators in the state.
This is contained in a statement by Corps Commander Selina Williams, the state Sector Commander on Sunday in Jalingo.
According to her, the move was part of the Command’s Strategy for curbing criminal activities in the state.
Williams explained that the ongoing exercise complied with the directives by the Acting Corps Marshal Dauda Biu to FRSC formations nationwide.
She said, “Taraba Government had banned the use of motorcycles within the Jalingo metropolis of the State since 2012, rather they are operating in the outskirts of the metropolises and other local government areas.
“The command is clamping down on the unregistered ones having realised that criminals were using them to perpetrate evil activities in communities.”
The sector Commander maintained that the Command would continue engaging the relevant stakeholders in this regard for total compliance aimed at improving the security situation of Taraba and Nigeria at large.
