This is contained in a statement by SP Gambo Isa, the spokesman of the command, on Monday in Katsina.

He explained that the restriction in other Local Government Areas, especially the frontline areas, remained from 6p.m to 6 a.m.

Although, the state government banned motorcycle movements from the above-mentioned time due to insecurity, Governor Aminu Masari lifted the restriction during Ramadan.
