Lagos announces total ban on Okada in six local governments

Following the murder of a 36-year-old sound engineer, Sanwo-Olu has reimposed the ban on commercial motorcycles popularly called Okada in some local government areas in the state.

Lagos State Wednesday said the operations of commercial motorcyclists have been totally banned in six local governments in the state.

Lagos State governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said no commercial motorcyclists would be allowed to operate in any part of Ikeja, Surulere, Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland, Lagos Island and Apapa local councils from June 1.

“This is the phased banning that we are going to be embarking on so that others will know that in a short while it is either they get out or look for something else to do,” Sanwo-Olu said at a meeting with police area commanders and DPOS at the Lagos House, Ikeja.
