The Federal Capital Territory Administration FCTA has arrested over 50 dispatch riders for riding against one-way and beating traffic lights within the city centre.
The Director, FCTA Directorate of Road Traffic Services DRTS, Alhaji Wadata Bodinga, made this known while briefing newsmen shortly after conducting round the arrested motorcycles on Wednesday in Abuja.
Bodinga warned that the conduct and activities of dispatch riders in the city would no longer be acceptable by the Federal Capital Territory Administration and the motoring public.
He revealed that the directorate had received a lot of complaints about the conduct of some dispatch riders within the city and ” we have seen it too.
” We are here to display the dispatch riders that we arrested for either riding against one-way in the city or beating the traffic lights.
” As you may observe that the number of dispatch riders has increased within the city, probably because of the COVID-19 pandemic that is ravaging not only Abuja or Nigeria but the whole world.
” Because of their door-to-door services dispatch riders, which can actually ease people that are staying at home to be able to deliver some of their needs.
” Just between Tuesday and today Wednesday, over 50 motorcycles and dispatch riders have been arrested for various offenses. He said.
On his part, the Chairman FCTA Ministerial Taskforce on Traffic Management, Mr. Ihkaro Attah, said dispatch riders who are allowed to operate in the city are already abusing the privilege.
” We give the directorate pass mark for clamping down on these violators and some vehicles here are also involved.
” They will be going through Phycreatics test to ascertain if they are normal because if something is not wrong with them, they must be wrong with something.”
