The Commissioner of Police Borno State, CP Damian Chukwu is disillusioned at the continued criminal and other unbecoming conduct capable of causing breach of public peace in Maiduguri Metropolis and its environs.

It would be recalled that following the protest embarked upon by different groups of Tricycle riders on Monday, 30th July, 2018, the Commissioner of Police swung into action disbanded the State Central Motor Traffic Department (Central MTD) and ordered investigations into allegations of extortion leveled against security personnel.

A statement signed by the police public relations officer Mr Edet Okon added that perpetrators of these acts of lawlessness are mostly Keke Napep/Tricycle operators.

Despite the above gratifying measures by the command, lawless conduct of the tri-cyclists which include brazen disobedience of traffic laws, mob actions, rioting and other acts capable of causing breach of peace has continued unabated.

The command once again reiterates its continued commitment to the safety of lives and properties and the maintenance of public order and urges all aggrieved persons not to take the laws into their hands but to always resort to lawful ways of addressing or pressing forth their grievances.
