In Abuja, in what is perceived as an unwelcome turn of events, The Federal Capital Territory Administration begins mass arrest of keke drivers who fail to comply with the restriction order and ban from the city.





The National President of Tricycle Owners Association, Austin Apeh, and Chairman, Welfare Enforce Enforcement in FCT, Thomas Danjuma, organized a protest, bemoaning the injustice, threatening to seek redress at the National Industrial Court of Nigeria to fight for their rights.


Speaking on behalf of the Drivers, Apeh said “The FCTA said they would be banning us from the major routes and restrict us to the estates and villages. The decision is going to throw many people into the job market because keke business feeds over 40,000 persons in Abuja. We want to be proactive and come out on time because another evil is coming after the same assault 17 years ago."


He continued, “Politically, they are betraying our trust because the present administration approached us for assistance during the 2019 general elections and we did our best to bring them to power. It is unfortunate that the people we brought to the office have turned against us. A tricycle costs N680,000 and if you multiply it by 40,000, you will know the investments that will be wasted.”


Danjuma believes that banning the kekes would create more troubles and accused the government of only perpetuating such injustice when the President travels.
