Periodic police operations to clamp down criminal activities and prevent crimes usually committed by motor-cyclists have led to the seizure of 394 motorbikes by the Accra Regional Police command across the region in a five day operation.
The five-day operation which started on 22nd July and still underway is part of police efforts to sustain the current security situation in the country’s capital, Accra.
This according to the police, was to sanitize the system by reclaiming stolen motorbikes and compelling recalcitrant riders to regularize and update their documentation in line with Road traffic regulations.
Following directives of the Regional Commander, DCOP/ Afful Boakye Yiadom, to continue the motorbike exercise all divisional commanders began the operation in their various divisions to impound these motorbikes for various offences such as the use of unregistered motorbikes, riding without helmets, use of motorbikes without license or insurance, etc.
