The Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences on Saturday reiterated the ban of Okada riders on some restricted roads in Lagos Metropolis.
Mr Bayo Sulaiman, Chairman of the Taskforce told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that some motorcyclists still ply some restricted routes.
NAN recalls that the Lagos Traffic Law, promulgated on Aug.2, 2012, bans the operations of motorcyclists on 475 roads across the state.
“The Okada riders should desist from flouting the law of the state, or face the consequences.
“We will not fold our arms and watch some people endanger the lives of others all in the name of commercial motorcycle operations.
” We are stepping up the enforcement of the Traffic Law, and we promise that anybody caught in the act will be made to face the wrath of the law,” he said. (NAN)
