The National Security Council on July 21, 2022 announced plans to ban motorcycles and mining activities in Nigeria as part of its strategy to curb terrorist activities, stem security loopholes and cut off sources of funding for terrorists and bandits.

Addressing State House Correspondents after the meeting chaired by the President, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami stated that investigations are still ongoing especially to establish the correlation between mining and motorcycles which they suspect provide funding for the supply of arms to the terrorists.

Malami who noted that terrorists had moved from the conventional ways of funding their activities to mining and ransom taking, disclosed the government was not unaware of the economic consequences of the proposed resolutions, particularly the motorcycle ban but it has become imperative in order to guarantee the nation’s security.
