Shop owners, business operators, traders, commercial drivers and motorcyclists (Okada riders) in Ahiazu Mbaise LGA have been reminded that the ban on operations beyond 10.00 p.m. is still enforce.
The Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Superintendent of Police (SP) Danjuma Ragga gave the reminder while harping on the need for the public to complement efforts of the police in crime detection, checks and control.
He said the enforcement of the order was not to witch hunt or victimize anybody but to checkmate activities of criminals and ensure watertight security, especially in the precarious ‘ember’ months.
SP Danjuma cautioned Okada riders who operate round the clock to desist, pointing out that some operate under the disguise to aid armed robbers who unleash terror on their unsuspecting victims and burglars who break shops and stalls at nights to cart away goods and valuables.
He vowed to deal decisively with any of them caught without plate numbers, warning that their motorcycles would be impounded until they present genuine documents and registered plates.
The DPO appealed to the public to be law abiding, shun late nights and report suspicious movements of persons and strange objects to the police for prompt intervention.
He affirmed combat readiness of his men and officers, guarantying confidentiality of reports and adequate security of lives and properties.
