Controversy, Kicks Trail Proposed Ban On Motorcycles By Federal Government

Controversy, kicks have trailed the proposed ban on motorcycles by federal government.

News ToGo learnt that controversies have begun to trail the federal government’s plan to place a ban on motorcycles across the country. It would be recalled that after the Federal Executive Council meeting on Tuesday, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, told Journalists at the state house that the government was considering a ban on Motorcycles, claiming it was being used to commit crimes across the country.

However, some Nigerians who spoke in Kaduna on Saturday, said the federal government has deviated from arresting and prosecuting the main financiers of terrorists, bandits and Boko haram and has now moved to punish the poor masses who have no means of livelihood but rely on motorcycles to feed, clothe and provide for their families, according to a report by Daily Post.

They alleged that the APC-led government always target the poor masses, rather than arresting the rich who use criminals to terrorize the poor and in most cases kill them through banditry.

Bola Ahmed, District Head of Kujama, Kaduna in his lamentation said, “Our children use motorcycles to feed us. They have no business with bandits. In most cases, the bandits trekked several kilometres to attack our people.”

He said the banning of motorcycles will have no effect on bandits because even those terrorists using motorcycles, are using them inside the forest.

Mr. Yunusa Madaki noted that the federal government will only suffer the innocent masses if it bans the use of bikes because bandits will still use their motorcycles, parked a few kilometres, before attacking residents. If they kidnap, they trek for kilometres to where they parked before they move on.

Mrs. Rhoha Acheneje who was a victim of bandits attack said that all instruments, including motorcycles, guns are within the forest.

She asked the government to set up Special Squads that will move to the forest, and recover all those exhibits.

Didam Auta said the motorcycle ban will affect poor people more, as they will trek to the market, carry their foodstuff on their heads. Even civil servants find it difficult to reach their respective offices.

” In cases of emergency, those in interior villages seek the help of Motorcyclists to convey their sick ones or pregnant women to the hospital. Once banned, many Nigerians will suffer.” He said.

JUST IN: TB Joshua's Emmanuel TV Channel Removed

YouTube has removed the primary channel associated with the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua—Emmanuel TV.

News ToGo reports that the channel, which broadcasts the religious activities of the church, was taken down following allegations against the late preacher. This action comes after the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) aired controversial documentary reports about allegations of torture and rape linked to TB Joshua.

The termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel on YouTube is a response to the platform’s policies against hate speech, cyberbullying, and harassment, particularly targeting survivors of sexual violence. The move follows openDemocracy’s report on more than 50 abusive videos amplifying attacks against Joshua’s accusers.

The documentary by BBC World Service, in collaboration with openDemocracy, featured whistleblowers who made on-the-record allegations of sexual and psychological torture, financial fraud, and criminal negligence by Joshua. In a disturbing backlash, YouTube accounts promoting SCOAN shared archival video footage depicting experiences of these abuse survivors, leading to the termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel.
