The Kaduna State government has banned commercial and private motor cycles as a measure towards tackling banditry.

The ban, which will last for three months, is expected to take effect from Thursday.

The government also banned possession of weapons.

While announcing the ban at a press conference on Wednesday, Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said tricycles have been restricted to operating between 6am and 6pm.
