Total Ban On Okada In Lagos Takes Effect In Two Months – Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday revealed that the total ban on commercial motorcycles popularly called Okada will take effect in two months.

Speaking at the launch of 500 First and Last Mile Buses (FLM) meant to be deployed to inner roads in Lagos, Sanwo-Olu said this had become important because motorcycles are being used for criminal activities.

Sanwo-Olu also said Okada riders contribute to fatal accidents in the state.

The governor also warned those driving against traffic to desist as repeated offenders would not only lose their vehicle, they would contend with a three-year jail term, while first offenders will face a one-year jail term.
