Amid the prevailing insecurity in the country, Commissioner for Transport in Niger State, Hadiza Kuta has advised residents to shun tricycles without tracking codes or those with mutilated codes to ensure their safety.
NAN reports that Kuta disclosed this on Wednesday in Minna while speaking with Journalists.
She warned residents to be more cautious in the face of insecurity in the state.
“All tricycle operators have tracking numbers; before you board any tricycle, check that it has a tracking number.
“Do not board any tricycle without a tracking number; if you do not see the code, do not board.
“Commuters can also snap the code of tricycles they intend to board on their phones for easy tracking.
“This has become necessary if they forget valuables inside the tricycle or they are robbed”, he said.
DAILY POST recalls that over 20 military officers were buried after an ambush by bandits in Niger State recently.
