This was disclosed by Governor Babatunde Sanwo-Olu in an interview monitored by business breakfast on sunday. The Governor said, “the Okada ban; we have seen tremendous improvements, in the areas which it has been banned.
In fact, people have written to me to commend, saying they are not only seeing a drop in issues around insecurity but also a drop in accidents. We don’t see people having their limbs cut off because of reckless driving that hurt people”.
Recall that on May 18, 2022, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had announced a total ban of commercial motorcycle operators in 6 local government areas in the state.
This came barely 2 days after a task force in the state embarked on a serious clampdown of Okada riders on the Lekki axis in a move that appears to be connected to the outrage that greeted the killing and burning of a young man, simply identified as David by suspected motorcyclists in the Admiralty area of Lekki, Lagos.
