Motorcycle ban enforecement: Lagos police command dismisses alleged threats by Okada riders to disrupt commercial activities on June 1 (Updated: 4 months ago)


The Lagos State Police Command has dismissed a panic-laced message making the rounds on social media purporting that motorcycle riders in the state have concluded plans to disrupt social and commercial activities in Lagos State from June 1, 2022 in protest of the ban on the use of motorcycles within six LGAs in Lagos State. 

A statement released by SP Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesperson of the state police command, says the Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, assures all Lagosians that all necessary human, material and operational resources have been deployed across the state to forestall any breakdown of law and order. 

''A carefully drafted security architecture, resulting from a detailed crime-mapping of the state has been emplaced across the length and breadth of the state. In addition, all Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and tactical commanders have been placed on red alert towards any eventuality. 

CP Alabi, therefore, enjoins all residents of Lagos State to go about their lawful businesses without fear of harassment or intimidation before, during and after the touted date for the purported civil disturbance, as officers and men of the Command are fully on top of the situation. ''the statement in part reads

The Lagos state government on May 18th placed a total ban on the operations of commercial motorcyclists aka Okada riders in six local government areas in the state.

The affected local government areas include Ikeja, Surulere, Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland, Apapa, and Lagos Island.
