Eid-El Fitir: Tricycle, motorcycle, fireworks banned in Plateau

In its efforts to ensure a hitch-free Sallah celebration in Plateau State, security chiefs in the State, led by the Commander of the Special Task Force (STF), Major General Anthony Atolagbe, has announced restriction of movement for operators of tricycles, popularly known as Keke NAPEP and motorcycles.

The restriction will last for two days, Friday and Saturday in the State.

The STF, which is also code named Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), made the call after a Joint Security Meeting, held at its headquarters in Jos, to strategize on security measures ahead of the Sallah celebration.

The OPSH, which is also in-charge of eight Local Governments in Southern Kaduna, also said the use of fireworks, hate speech, street procession and over loading of vehicles during the celebration was prohibited, adding that worshippers should not hesitate to submit themselves for screening before entering Mosque and any other worship centre designated for prayers.

However, Atolagbe said that the Joint Security Chiefs were committed to guard and sustain the relative peace that was being enjoyed in the State.

“While assuring Plateau residents of adequate security during the Sallah celebration, the STF enjoins residents to support the Force with timely information on any movement of suspicious and strange persons around them,” he said
