Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, has lifted the ban on the use of motorcycles across 10 local government areas of Yobe North and South senatorial districts in the state.

Buni made the announcement on Monday at Nguru Emir’s Palace while commiserating with residents over the recent fire incident at Nguru market.

Buni noted that residents are now free to use their motorcycles for easy access to their farms among other legitimate purposes.

He pointed out that the new measure was a result of the improvement in security situation witnessed in those areas.

Yobe State government banned the use of motorcycles in January 2012 during the peak of the Boko Haram crisis.

Areas free to use motorcycles now include Bade, Nguru, Karasuwa, Yusufari, Machina, Jakusko, Fune, Fika, Nangere and Potiskum local governments areas respectively.
