Japan Motors, Lakeside Estate donate 2 escort motorcycles to police

Japan Motors Trading Company Ltd (JMTC), together with its sister company Lakeside Estate, has donated two Yamaha FJR 1300AP Police Escort Motorcycles valued at GH¢ 728,000 to the Ghana Police Service (GPS).


According to the two companies, the donation is to facilitate the movement of personnel and the law enforcement agency in the discharge of their duties, especially during their professional escort services.

Yamaha FJR 1300

The Yamaha FJR 1300 Police Escort motorcycle is renowned for its efficient performance and comfort over long distances. Equipped with a robust 1300cc 16-valve engine, the bike boasts impressive horsepower and a top speed of 250km/hour.

The Managing Director of JMTC, who also doubles as the acting Chairman of the Lakeside Estate, Kalmoni, led a high-powered delegation from the two companies to hand over the bikes to the Police Administration in Accra.

In an address, he noted that the group sees this gesture as something that goes beyond corporate social responsibility. “It symbolises our steadfast backing for those who selflessly dedicate themselves to maintaining peace and safeguarding the lives and properties of our community”.

Mr Kalmoni recalled that it was not the first instance the companies had extended support to the GPS, as they made a similar donation of about 10 motorcycles to the Service back in 2022 as an appreciation of the Police administration’s unwavering commitment to safeguarding our society.

He, therefore, commended the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and all his officers for their swift response to an armed robbery incident that occurred at its Truck showroom car park in Tema, where a brand-new Pickup was stolen.

“Promptly reporting the incident to the Tema Police Command led to the recovery of the vehicles. This successful outcome is a testament to the competence and efficiency of our law enforcement agencies, hence the need for all to support them to boost their operations.

Hard work and dedication

For his part, the Managing Director for Lakeside Estate, Dr Prince Joseph Ayiku, said the two companies had taken cognisance of the hard work of the Police, hence, the donation to support the work and dedication of the IGP and his team for the changes he had made since he took over the mantle.

He said policing was a shared responsibility and that donations such as that would go a long way to make communities in the country safer. "Lakeside Estate and Japan Motors believe this is the birth of a beautiful relationship with the Ghana Police Service and look forward to further collaborations.

"The company has seen your good work and we urge you to continue. Lakeside Estate and Japan Motors are strongly behind you," he said.

The MD of Lakeside further said a secure business environment is essential for economic growth and investment and that is why Lakeside Estate priorities security as a pivotal in its development.


The IGP, Dr George Akufo Dampare, who received the motorcycles on behalf of the Police Administration, expressed his appreciation to Japan Motors and Lakeside Estate for what he described as a genuine effort to spur efficiency and make a lot of difference in their operations.

He said whoever prioritised security was trying to ensure social, economic and environmental sustainability and all these things made society flourish. “It is in this spirit that we accept the donation of these two most powerful escort motorbikes.

 “They will make a lot of difference in our operation,” he said. Dr Dampare also assured that the GPS would continue to provide security to ensure that businesses in the country flourished.
