The Anambra State Government has banned the Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN) from operating in the state.
The Commissioner for Transport, Mr Uchenna Okafor, made this statement, saying the ban became necessary following ceaseless negative reports over activities of the association in the State.
He warned that any person or group operating under the guise of tricycle operators would be dealt with.
“No union can exist without the consent of the government,’’ he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the commissioner is urging security agencies in the state to ensure that TOAN and any other such unknown groups operating under the name ceased to exist in the state.
