The Security Department of the FCTA and the DRTS with the support of the Bwari Area Council has recommenced seizing of commercial motorcyclist popularly called Okada.
Attah Ikharo, Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to FCT Minister, said the resumed operation was a directive from the Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello that the illegalities associated with Okada operation should be dealt with drastically.
You will recall that Okada was banned in Kubwa and Dutse about two years ago but resurfaced after the ENDSARS protests.
According to Attah Ikharo, ““From what we heard from Police Divisional headquarters of Kubwa is that there had been so much burial, resulting from deaths occasioned by Okada riders recklessness leading to accident or the ones they killed during mob action.
“The Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello during the last executive meeting gave a marching order that all that all components of the FCTA task force should clean Kubwa of Okada because they come to express ways in flagrant disregard of traffic rules, the mess up the roads and commit mayhem.”
At the end of the resumed operation, the Head of DRTS Operation, Deborah Osho confirmed that 94 bikes were impounded during the operation and it would be sustained.
