He pointed out that the new measure was a result of the improvement in security situation witnessed in those areas.

Yobe State government banned the use of motorcycles in January 2012 during the peak of the Boko Haram crisis.

Areas free to use motorcycles now include Bade, Nguru, Karasuwa, Yusufari, Machina, Jakusko, Fune, Fika, Nangere and Potiskum local governments areas respectively.
