THE Joint Action Movement (JAM) has described recent protest of some commercial motorcyclists also referred to as Okada riders against the Lagos State Traffic Law as illegal.

The group, at rallies at Agege and Mile 12, over the weekend, warned the protesters that they were toying with contempt of court charges with their actions, noting that “the matter has been adjucated upon by a court of competent jurisdiction”.

Addressing the joint rallies, the national coordinator and general secretary of  JAM, Messrs Kehinde Olaore and Kola Animasaun, respectively wondered “why an aggrieved set of people, who approached the court for adjudication could thereafter engage in senseless protest after the case has been thrown out!”
