Operatives of the Lagos State Taskforce have impounded 160 motorcycles, popularly known as okada in a massive clampdown in Berger, FESTAC, Apple Junction and Berger areas of Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

The move is in continuation of the Taskforce’s bid to rid the State of the menace of Okada.

The operation lasted several hours and was led by the Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye, who stated that the Agency would continue to truncate the activities of okada operators if they did not turn over a new leaf.

“Okada operations have been banned and banned for good. It is high time operators look for a different line of legitimate work or have their bikes impounded and also risk fines or jail terms. There is no room for okada operations in Lagos,” he said.

The Chairman assured Lagosians that the mop-up exercise of okada activities and others that go against the THEMES PLUS Agenda of the state government would be continuous and deliberate until safety and serenity are completely attained in the metropolis.
