The Lagos State government has directed law enforcement agencies and security personnel to ensure the total compliance of Motorcycle operators also known as Okada riders on further ban on their operations in four Local Governments and six Local Council development areas of the state, with effect from September 1ST 2022.

Speaking at a Press Briefing organised by the Inter-ministerial committee on Okada ban at Press Centre, Alausa, Ikeja, the Commissioner for Transportation, Frederic Oladeinde, re-emphasized the need for total compliance by riders for the security and safety of lives of residents.

The commissioner said the Lagos state government had put in place various interventions in the state to ease the inconveniences that the development might bring to the people adding that there was a need to obey the Lagos State traffic law as both the rider and passenger would be penalised.

The Commissioner also said the Okada ban in the affected areas was in the right direction and there would be no going back on total enforcement by the state.
