He made these revelations shortly after the state’s security council meeting.

Makinde, while speaking, noted that the state has decided to address the menace associated with commercial motorcycle and tricycle operations with a view to further securing the state.

He added that from January 1, 2024, no unregistered motorcycle or tricycle operator would be allowed to operate in the state.
