The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Thursday, lamented the massive return of commercial motorcycles to Abuja, as it crushed over 200 motorcycles.
Director FCTA Directorate of Road Traffic Services (DRTS) , Dr. Abdulateef Bello, while speaking to journalists at the venue of the crushing of the motorcycles, said there is no going back until the administration achieves zero level compliance.
According to him, “This is the fifth edition in the series and I have no doubt that from the enforcement we have carried out, we have substantially reduced the number of motorcycles in Abuja.
“But it seems as if the efforts would still be on until we achieve the zero level of this exercise but something tells me that most of these motorcycles riders are those that engage in criminal activities like drug peddling. Since they are not tired we won’t be tired.”
Continuing, he said: “I think they are well over 200 that we are crushing today. We will continue to take them week by week until we get rid of them.
“We have already given order to all our commands that anywhere they are sighted, they should be impounded and handed over to DRTs.
Once they are sighted at the wrong route they should be impounded and handed over to us.”
