okadaThe Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences on Saturday reiterated the ban of Okada riders on some restricted roads in Lagos Metropolis.

Mr Bayo Sulaiman, Chairman of the Taskforce told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that some motorcyclists still ply some restricted routes.

NAN recalls that the Lagos Traffic Law, promulgated on Aug.2, 2012, bans the operations of motorcyclists on 475 roads across the state.

“The Okada riders should desist from flouting the law of the state, or face the consequences.

“We will not fold our arms and watch some people endanger the lives of others all in the name of commercial motorcycle operations.

” We are stepping up the enforcement of the Traffic Law, and we promise that anybody caught in the act will be made to face the wrath of the law,” he said. (NAN)

  • One day God will pay all of you for the pain you’re inflicting on ordinary man in Lagos all in the name of Traffic Law. If you’re sincere as you claim why are the uniform men allowed to ply the same routes, for some of us who are current, the other day we heard hw police vehicle knocked down a woman $ her child while plying one way, according to the news the family have spent over #500,000. Above all what’s the diff btw Boxer – the popular motorcycle in Lag $ the one Fashola’s wife is importing. That motorcycle is sold for #250,000. Ordinarily, that motorcycle should not be more than a hundred $ twenty thousand naira. A word for FASHOLA the eyes of our God is watching, our God bcos your God is same as that of Boko Haram. We are praying that no muslim rule Lagos in 2015
