Governor Sanwo-Olu places ban on Okada in some parts of lagos

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has reimposed the ban on Okada in some Local Governments of the State.

The Governor gave the order while speaking with all DPOs and Area Commanders across the State at the Lagos House, Ikeja.

He revealed that other security agencies will join in the enforcement, which will take effect from June 1, 2022.

Affected Local Government Areas are the whole of Ikeja, Surulere, Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland, Lagos Island and Apapa.

A mob of okada riders had last week attacked and killed a sound engineer with Legacy360 Band, Sunday David Imoh, at the Admiralty Way, Lekki over an argument on N100 fare.

The mob also attacked and injured two other members of the band including a saxophonist, Francis Olatunji, and the keyboardist, Philip Balogun.

Many Lagosians have condemned the action of the okada riders, and called on government to curb their excesses.

This is not the first time Lagos State is announcing a ban on operation of okada in some parts of the State but implementation has not been very effective.

Did i hear Apapa?… So, how would people cope at the mad traffic gridlock at Apapa?
