The Joint Task Force of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) took action on Thursday, disposing of more than 470 motorcycles that had been operating unlawfully within Abuja, the nation’s capital.

As reported by the News Agency of Nigeria, the motorcyclists put up resistance to prevent their bikes from being impounded, resulting in a violent confrontation with security personnel.

On Thursday, the task force conducted a surprise operation in the community, leading to a high-speed pursuit as the motorcycle operators scattered in an attempt to evade arrest.

This operation resulted in the impoundment of no fewer than 470 motorcycles, starting from the popular car wash bus stop in Lugbe and extending to locations like Gosa, Bill Clinton Drive, Trademore Estate, Lugbe Junction, Kubwa, and the surrounding areas.

It’s worth noting that a new motorcycle typically costs between 500,000 to 600,000 Naira, making this development disheartening for the owners.Wike Taskforce impounds 470 motorcycles in Abuja

This incident is a follow-up to a similar operation in August, where the FCTA impounded and destroyed over 400 motorcycles for the same violation.

The crackdown on motorcycle operations within the city continues.
