-As Ban On Night Riding Lifted
Motorcyclists in the commercial city of Ganta, Nimba County are said to be jubilating following the lifting of ban on night riding in the city. It can be recalled on October 5, 2015, a ban was placed on commercial motorcycles riding in Ganta at night.

The ban was placed due to demonstration resulting in damaging of properties belonging to businessman Prince Howard and that of the Ganta police station over the killing of their colleague.

It was not established that the commercial motorcyclists were the perpetrators of the crime committed, but they were restricted in an effort to regulate traffic and control the movement of people in Ganta. The ban has been in full swim since its imposition in 2015.

According to a local journalist in the city, the decision to lift the ban was reached at a county national dialogue organized by the Liberia National Police and Ganta City Mayor Benjamin Dokpa recently.

At the gathering, Mayor Dokpa called on police inspector general Gregory Coleman to lift the ban on bike riding at night in Ganta. Mayor Dokpa maintained that the ban has cost serious embarrassment for travelers who travelled by car at night from different locations to Ganta.

“Business women and men, other travelers have been complaining from several hijacks from criminals in Ganta at night,” he recounted. The Ganta Mayor is at the same time recommending for the provision of vehicle for police of Ganta.

According to him, the vehicle will facilitate the police to tour the city and other communities nearby. A lone vehicle used by police officers in the city three years ago was used to trace criminals in Ganta, Saclepea, Bahn, Yarwin-Mehnsonon, Duo and other security operational areas in Nimba, but was damaged during the September 2015 demonstration in Ganta.
