Sanwo-Olu bans tricycles, Okada, Opay, Gokada on Lagos Road

Lagos State Government has placed a ban on the activities of commercial motorcycles popularly called Okada and tricycles in some local government areas in the state.

The ban also includes Opay and Gokada operators.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, said on Monday that the decision was taken after a robust assessment of the debate on the rate of accidents in Lagos.

Mr Omotoso said the government would enforce the ban on motorcycles and tricycles in six local government areas, as well as major highways and bridges from February 1.

The figures are scary. From 2016 to 2019, there were over 10,000 accidents recorded at the General Hospitals alone,” he said in a statement.

“This number excludes unreported cases and those recorded by other hospitals. The total number of deaths from reported cases is over 600 as at date.
