Lagos extends Okada ban to four more local govts from September 1
The Lagos State government has intensified the clampdown on commercial motorcyclists, also known as Okada in the state.
This was announced by Dr. Fredric Oladeinde, the state Commissioner for Transportation at an inter-ministerial media briefing on Thursday, held at Alausa, Ikeja.
It would be recalled that the Lagos State Government had earlier stated that it is considering a total ban on the operations of Okada riders in all the local government areas (LGAs) in the state.
He said Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor approved a total ban on additional four local governments in the state starting from September 1.
Also affected are some Local Council Development Areas of the state. The affected councils include:
Kosofe, Ikosi-Isheri, Oshodi-Isolo, Mushin, and the respective LCDAs in the areas.
