Residents of Kaduna have reacted following the ban order by the state government on the operations of private and commercial motorcycles.

The state government on Wednesday issued, among others, a three-month ban on the operations of private and commercial motorcycles as part of measures to assist security agencies in parts of the state.

Some of the residents who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday commended the move while others maintained that the government should rescind its decision.

Mr Nura Mohammed of Unguwan Rimi told NAN that the decision had its attendant effects, nothing that nothing good came without a price.

He said the number of casualties of insecurity could not be equated with the temporal inconvenience the development would cause some people.

Mr Kunle Adeolu, a commercial motorcycle operator resident at Barnawa, said the development would affect his source of livelihood.
