The Kwara State Police Command has disclosed that the ban on motorcycles and tricycles across the state between 9:00 pm and 6:00 am is still in force.

The command in a statement on Tuesday by its Police Public Relations Officer, Okasanmi Ajayi, said the reminder became imperative following operators flouting the ban.

He also clarified that contrary to reports, the command never arrested any union leader or member on account of their political leanings.

The statement read, “This reminder is imperative in light of the wrong assumption by some political party supporters that the enforcement of the order banning the movement of Okada and Keke NAPEP operators is targeting Okada riders who were loyal to their party; this assumption is false and without basis.

“The police arrested no union leader for supporting any political party, if there was any arrest, the arrested person definitely must have committed an offense.”

He said the police command is apolitical and non-partisan and has been discharging its duties conscientiously without fear or favour.

He, however, advised supporters of political parties to eschew heating up the polity and stand by the truth at all times.
