The National Security Council on Thursday announced plans to ban motorcycles and mining activities in the country.

The decision is part of strategy to curb terrorist activities, check loopholes and cut off terrorists’ funding sources.

Addressing state house correspondents after the end of Thursday’s National Security Council Meeting, chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said investigations are still ongoing especially to establish the correlation between mining and motorcycles, which they suspect provide funding for the supply of arms to the terrorists.

Malami, who noted that terrorists had moved from the conventional ways of funding their activities to mining and ransom from kidnapping, disclosed the government was not unaware of the economic consequences of the proposed resolutions, particularly the motorcycle ban, but it has become imperative, in order to guarantee the nation’s security.
