Lagos Taskforce Seizes 322 Okadas, Says Riders, Passengers Risk 3-Months Jail Term Or N50k Fine Or Both (Updated: 2 months ago)


Lagos State Taskforce clamps down on okada operators plying banned routes, seizes 322 motorcycles.

 

Says both passengers and riders face a penalty of either three months jail term or N50,000 fine, or both.

 

Assures citizens that more will be done until the State’s vision of maintaining safety and sanity on Lagos roads is actualised.


The Lagos State Taskforce has continued its enforcement of the ban on commercial motorcyclists (OKADA) that ply restricted highways, particularly in the six Local Governments Areas and nine Local Council Development Areas across the State.

 

Speaking on the exercise which took place in Agege/Fagba, Apapa and Ajah, the Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye, described the activities of the recalcitrant okada operators as Rebellious.

 

He vowed to ensure those who continue to disregard the ban would have their bikes confiscated and crushed by the State Government.

 

Jejeloye further stated that 322 bikes have been seized since the commencement of the week-long raid in the aforementioned areas of the State. He assuring citizens that more will be done until the State’s vision of maintaining safety and sanity on Lagos roads is actualised.

 

“We intend to continue embarking on raids across the State towards ensuring a total clampdown on bike operators violating the ban on plying major highways in the six Local Governments Areas and nine Local Council Development Areas till total compliance is attained”, he stated.

 

While warning Lagosians who patronise recalcitrant okada operators to desist, CSP Jejeloye declared that passengers would henceforth be arrested and prosecuted with the okada operators.

His words:

 

“Both passengers and riders are culpable if found operating on routes banned by the State Government and both will face a penalty of either three months jail term or N50,000 fine, or both as pronounced by the courts”.

 

The Chairman, therefore, enjoined Lagos residents to embrace alternative means of transportation which are safer and in line with the State’s inter-modal transportation vision.
