In six Lagos Local Government Areas, the state government has outlawed the operating of commercial motorbikes known as Okadas.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu made the statement during a meeting of leaders of security services in the state on Wednesday at the State House, Ikeja, according to Naija02.
According to the governor, the absolute prohibition on Okada in the six local councils will go into effect on June 1, 2022, and will be strictly implemented.
The restriction in the six local councils, according to Sanwo-Olu, is part of the state’s phase of outlawing okadas.
According to Sanwo-Olu, the six local government areas’ Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) would also be impacted.
Ikeja, Surulere, Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland, Lagos Island, and Apapa are the six impacted local governments, according to the governor.
However, he ordered all Divisional Police Officers (DPOs), Area Commanders, and the Taskforce to begin enforcing the blanket prohibition on June 1.
“This is the phase banning we are going to be embarking on so that others know that in a short while, either they get out or get something else to do.
“From the first of June, the LCDAs that are underneath them, we are going to publish them and list all of them, so we are giving the notice now.
“Begin to do your strategy now, from the first of June we want all the okadas to be completely off these major roads,”
