Lagos State Government has announced its decision to extend the ban on motorcycle riders to four more Local Government Areas (LGAs).
This was confirmed by the Commissioner for Transport, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, on Thursday.
Oladeinde explained that the decision was taken after a review of the earlier ban on the operation of commercial motorcycles in six local councils.
He also disclosed that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has directed full enforcement of the Okada ban from September 1, 2022.
The additional councils where the total Okada ban is pronounced include Kosofe Local Government, Oshodi-Isolo Local Government, Shomolu Local Government, and Mushin Local Government.
Others are Ikosi-Isherri LCDA, Agboyi-Ketu LCDA, Isolo LCDA, Bariga LCDA, and Odi-Olowo LCDA.
It would be recalled that Sanwo-Olu had in May banned motorcycles on highways and six local governments and nine Local Council Development Areas.
The governor had hinged the ban on several complaints over the growing menace and nuisance constituted by Okada riders in the state.
