Oyetola expressed dissatisfaction to the way motorcycle operators allowed themselves to be used to cause unprecedented damages around the state in the last few days and charged the leadership of the associations, to advise their members to desist from allowing themselves to be used for criminal activities in the state.

“Security reports revealed that your members played major roles in the destabilization and breakdown of law and order that necessitated the imposition of curfew in the State. Your members were the ones who ferried looters from house to house to perpetrate evil. They were the ones who were paid to transport hoodlums to destroy people’s businesses, he said.
