Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Wednesday announced the total ban of the operations of commercial motorcyclists popularly called Okada.
According to him, the first phase of the total ban will affect 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.
