The police have explained the recent announcement to check the use of motor bikes.
The Police Administration, on Monday issued a press release to correct the misconception surrounding the instituted security measures to check the use of motor bikes to commit crime, especially armed robbery.
The police Administration in the release noted that the point is to conduct thorough security checks on motor-bike being used after 8:00pm and not a ban. The release further explained that a lot of emphasis will be placed on places like Accra, Kumasi, Sekondi Tarkoradi, Cape Coast and not Tamale, Bolga and Wa where street robbery with motor bikes is not prominent.
The police in the release stated that they had enough evidence to prove that motor bikes are used to facilitate armed robbery activities especially at night. Decent people in society were charged not to be worried about the measures being taken by the Police because they are aimed at ensuring their safety and well being.
The police stated in the release that the name of the rider, his or her license, registration document of the motor bike, whether the number tallies with the documents of the motor bike and a search on the motor bike are some of the routine information and checks the police will demand when encountered and noted that the exercise is not limited only to motor bikes but all kinds of vehicles.
“The war on armed robbery continues, and the police call for the support of the general public and media in particular in this regard.”
