Okada ban: Lekki residents raise alarm over planned attack

The Lekki Phase I Residents Association (LERA) has raised an alarm over an alleged plan by commercial motorcyclists popularly known as Okada riders to attack their community.

The alarm comes hours after the Lagos State government announced a total ban on commercial motorcyclists on all highways across six local government areas (LGAs) and nine local council development areas (LCDAs). The affected councils are Eti-Osa, Ikeja, Surulere, Lagos Island, Lagos Mainland and Apapa and all the LCDAs under them.

Speaking to newsmen, the Chairman of LERA, Yomi Idowu, said the residents have noticed the unusual presence of hoodlums in some uncompleted buildings in the area.

“Intelligence reports reaching us are that following the raid on Okada riders and subsequent seizure of their bikes in Lekki Phase 1 by officials of Lagos State Taskforce, the riders, who believe the action was instigated by Lekki residents, are planning to attack the residents,” he said

Idowu urged the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to enforce the total ban on Okada.
