Before crushing the seized motorcycles in Area 1, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Commissioner of Police, Garba Haruna, said that the action was proof that the okada ban was still in effect.

According to him: “FCT residents are aware that motorcycles had been banned from entering the Federal Capital City since 2006, crushing of the okada is to show a signal that the city centre is not an area for them to operate.
