The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has banned the operations of commercial motorcycles popularly called Okada, in six Local Governments.
The governor announced that the ban is “indefinite and total”.
He gave the order on Wednesday while speaking with all Divisional Police Officers and Area Commanders across the state at the Lagos House, Ikeja.
Sanwo-Olu asked the Lagos Police Command and other security agencies to enforce the ban.
We are giving notice now, they should begin to plan their strategies. From June 1, we want all these Okadas to be completely off Lagos major roads.”
