The Kaneshie Police yesterday impounded 60 motor bicycles, many of which belong to commercial motor riders known in local parlance as ‘Okada’ riders.
In the five-hour operation, arrestees included riders who solicited for passengers, those who rode without helmets, those without insurance and license, and those who parked haphazardly.
In a statement, the district Police Command said the exercise is part of a clampdown on activities of criminals within the area.
The suspects are being processed for court, the statement added.
A number of district commands in Greater Accra have been undertaking swoops in their areas of operation as part of a new proactive approach at crime-fighting by the Greater Accra Regional Police Command.
Since March 3, various district Commands including Nungua, Adentan and Kaneshie have arrested some 120 suspects.
