Due to insecurity, the state government had banned motorcycle movements.

Governor of Katsina, Aminu Masari, however, lifted the restriction to ease movement during the month of Ramadan.

He added that the enforcement was necessary due to the recent threat to security caused by terrorists and other criminals using motorcycles.

“I am directed to draw the attention of the general public that the ban on the movement of motorcycles from 10p.m-6a.m in Katsina city is still in force. While in the frontline LGAs from 6p.m to 6a.m. It was temporarily lifted to ease movements during Ramadan.” the spokesperson said.
