The Lagos State Government has extended Okada ban to four more Local Govt Areas and five Local Council Development Areas in the state.

The Commissioner for Transport, Frederic Oladeinde, confirmed this on Thursday.

According to Oladeinde, the decision was taken after a review of the earlier ban on commercial motorcycles operation in six local councils.

The additional councils where the total Okada ban is pronounced include Kosofe Local Government, Oshodi-Isolo Local Government, Shomolu Local Government, and Mushin Local Government.

Others are Ikosi-Isherri LCDA, Agboyi-Ketu LCDA, Isolo LCDA, Bariga LCDA, and Odi-Olowo LCDA.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered full enforcement from September 1, 2022.

Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu had in May banned motorcycles on highways and six local governments and nine Local Council Development Areas.

The governor on May 24 also said the state government will go ahead with its proposed ban on motorcycles, adding that security services and Lagos State Government are on the same page with respect to the banning of motorcycles in the selected areas of the state.

He also assured that the security architecture of the state would not be compromised in any way so that Lagos residents will continue to live their lives and do their business without any fear or favour.
