Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice hinted about this on Thursday, July 21, 2022.
Malami dropped the hint while addressing State House reporters after a meeting of National Security Council (NSC) presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Why the ban matters: Malami said investigations have shown that motorcycles are used for mining activities across the country.
He added that the ban could cut off sources of funds for terrorists and bandits.
Malami also said the government needed to ban the use of motorcycles in the country because terrorists had moved from the conventional ways of funding their activities to mining and ransom taking, Daily Trust reports.
According to him, bandits use motorcycles for movement while they make money from mining to fund their arms supply.
