UPDATE: Why We Are Banning Okada and Keke- LASG

By Olamide Fadoju

 

The Lagos state government has blamed the high rate of crime and accidents for the imminent ban on commercial motorcycles and tricycles in the State.

 

Commissioner for Information, Lagos State, Gbenga Omotosho made this explanation on the programme, Morning Crossfire on Nigeria Info 99.3 FM.

 

According to Omotosho, "the disturbing, menacing and troublesome trend" has necessitated the ban.

 

“Human lives are involved, heads are being smashed everyday and people are complaining.

 

“We are talking about the crime rate, people are dying, people are going to the airport and get their bags snatched and they get stabbed and people escape on ‘Okada’. It’s just too much. The government cannot continue to keep quiet."

 

The Lagos State Government in an unexpected announcement said from February 1st, 2020, commercial motorcyclists which include Okada and Keke Maruwa will no longer be allowed in six local government areas in the state from. Local governments and roads on the ban list include:
