Some residents of Kano on Tuesday expressed mixed feelings about the ban on late-night operations by commercial tricycle riders by the Kano State government.

The state government issued a statement on Monday banning the operations of commercial tricycles after 10 p.m., as part of security measures.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria in Kano, some residents commended the directive while others advised the state government to rescind its decision.

Sani Lawal of Gwamaja Quarters described the restriction as punishment for many for the sins of a few people.

Ado Saleh, a commercial motorcycle operator resident at Unguwa-Uku, said the restriction would affect many commuters’ source of livelihood, because many work night shifts.

According to Saleh, travellers going into the state in night buses will be affected.

Shade Moses, a resident of Sabon-Gari, stated that the restriction would have adverse effect on residents living in remote areas of the state capital and other parts of the state.

Bala Muhammad, who resides at Dakata area of Kano, described the directive as a step in the right direction.

According to him, many lives have been lost to the activities of some criminals, who used tricycles to perpetrate evil.

Another resident of Hausawa area of the state capital, Aminu Isa, said the restriction would curb the destruction of lives and property by criminal gangs using commercial tricycles at night.

Labaran Aliyu, a civil servant, commended the state government for the restriction, saying it would reduce rampant cases of phone-snatching and other crimes.

Mr Aliyu said he lost a family member to criminals posing as commercial tricycle operators in the state capital one night.

He called on other states to emulate the Kano State government as the 2023 general elections approach.
