Iyana Ipaja: Okada Riders Clash With Police Over Ban In Lagos by Ishilove: 3:08pm On Feb 05
It was hell on earth for commuters in this axis today.

Hell was let loose in the early hours of Wednesday, in Iyana-Ipaja area of the state when dealers of motorcycles, popularly called “Okada,” riders and miscreants, known as “Area Boys,” engaged the police in a violent confrontation over enforcement of the recent ban by state government on Okada and others.

The situation which led to commotion and destruction of properties was said to have started around 8.am, which also resulted into traffic jam as motorists were caught in the clash.

Several vehicles were smashed and shops looted by miscreants who seized the opportunity to loot and vandalized properties.

According to eyewitness, identified as Mr Gbenga Alawaye, the trouble started when the police allegedly went into various shops where motorcycles are being sold and attempted to impound them. The dealers, apparently, felt they have not committed any offence, resisted the police from removing the items and in the process led into chaos as miscreants joined in the confrontation that ensued.

The entire area was blocked as protesters set bon-fire on the road, thus, preventing vehicular movement. The police, attached to the state taskforce, following the violent attack and being overwhelmed by the surging miscreants, called for reinforcement.

Men of the Rapid Response Squad, RRS, who provided reinforcement, on arrival at the scene shot cannisters of teargas into the air to scare away the miscreants.

The situation was later brought under control at about 11 am when police restored law and order to the area. A RRS source, who preferred anonymity, said a total number of 21 suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack and taken to Area “M” Police Command, Idimu.

The source, however, dismissed report making the round that a police van was set ablaze in the process, saying, “No police van has been set ablaze. Its not true.”

Banning okada was very okay but Keke could have been restricted.
However the deed has been done. Life must go on. People should just comply or they'd just be "happy targets" for these trigger happy policemen.

Lagos is such a crazy place to be.


No matter how sane you may think you are, the moment you enter into Lagos your sanity becomes exchanged with partial insanity, waiting for the day of manifestation.


The recent ban on Okada and Keke without palliatives has further driven the stress level in Lagos to an unbearable dimension.


Everybody for Lagos dey mad grin

Even the governor too was reportedly an ex-patient grin

You can't take away people's only means of livelihood and expect them to fold their hands. A hungry man is an angry man

Naija police and gragra sef!
Must they go into people's shops and compounds to confiscate Okada and Keke? The law didn't ban the sale of motorcycles or trikes. As long as they are not being ridden along the stipulated ways or roads, the police has no right to confiscate them.


Well I forgot, this is Nigeria undecided

There is no going back on the ban.
The more the riots, the more the government becomes resolute.

Police went to a place of business and tried to steal people goods? The ban was on use of commercial motorcycles and keke not on private businesses. This shithole keeps getting shiitier

The situation if unchecked, would fester and get worse. Though I support the ban, govt. should have designed an alternative means of livelihood for thousands of those the ban would affect.

But this is Nigeria.
