Okada Ban: We Are After Foreigners Operating Okada In Lagos — Lagos CP by 2cato: 3:25am On May 21
The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Abiodun Alabi, says the command is after foreigners operating as commercial motorcyclists in the state.

Alabi disclosed this on Friday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

He said that the command was aware of some foreigners operating as motorcyclists in the state and that they were after them.

We are aware that many commercial motorcyclists operating in Lagos are foreigners and we have commenced routing checks with the aim of profiling them.When we finish the profiling, we will hand them over to the Nigeria Immigration Service for further investigation and possible repatriation,” he said.

On the inflow of motorcycles into Lagos State, Alabi said the command was activating the old strategy by deploying officers to all border towns to check every means of importing motorcycle in the state.

“We are going to carry out the old strategy by ensuring that no motorcycle comes into the state. We will seize any motorcycle found in any vehicle coming into Lagos,” he said.

The police commissioner had on Thursday, advised that people should stop giving out motorcycles as means of empowerment, but adopt other meaningful venture.

Alabi, on Thursday was reacting to the total ban of commercial motorcycles in some local government areas in Lagos.

“People buying Okada (motorcycles) as empowerment for people should have a rethink.

“The fact remains that banning okada in Lagos while some people are bringing them in through empowerment is giving police problem in implementing the already existing laws,”he said. (NAN)

Good...

The Commissioner should also look into the proliferation of some certain "unrepentant tribes" into Lagos. Soon, they'll over run the peaceful state if strict measures are not put in place.

Hmnnn

Okadas are a real menace.yesterday the Road was clean and sane.crossing the road was easier because there were no bikes that drive recklessly and come out of no where, Knock you down and insult you on top.i was just looking around and the whole road was peaceful and I was like so Lagos can enjoy a day of sanity? The nuisance factor of Okada is too much.their negativity is more than their positive sideS plus They lack decency and courtesy to apologize when they are wrong or corrected by the police or other road users.however I feel banning is not the solution.strict regulation is the solution.they should register in each state and be given a number in that state and local government and they must not move beyond that jurisdiction.that way their chaos will be curtailed.

Just Go to igbobi and see how many legs are broken by Okada riders.still they don't hear word

When did you carry out your statistics? Can you share this with us? As far as I am concern before you see any Igbo or Yoruba bike man, you would have seen a lot of Fulani with many of them from Niger.

I don't know where you got your majority from.

L'obatan! What a good strategy adopted in sending the almanjiri terrorists back to their region. So tinubu saw all these infilteration prior to now but looked the other way cos of his selfish political ambition? After seeing it written on the wall that the pick won't favour him, he's now doing these. Truly our politicians are our worst enemies.

The money that should have been used to build infrastructures that will not allow that kind of means of transportation have been shared and the governor thst meant well was denied the seat for a weaker one.

How on earth will a state with such IGR will allow okada and maruwa to operate. They operate terrible long buses when some are even smoking and their drivers are hell on earth awon Iran wicked soul.

The result is now evident. Allowing people from all corners of the world to build shanties, disobey your laws because they are northerners . Mile 12, odo iya. Alaro axis, agege abattoir And where they sell cow immediately after begger bridge inwards ogun state is a time bomb. Let the police operate also in the night and see what's going on when everyone has slept. It's happening in most states and its not a normal thing. 20- 30 bike men migrating as a convoy in the dead of the night.

It's is well

Charity they say begins at home. What do they say about the police riding okada as their side hustle or those ones are above the law. Last last they will seize okadas, sell some, keep some for their own selfish purposes and take few to alausa...

Who noticed he just used the word foreigner without defining it in the context being used ? Is it foreigners from outside Nigeria or foreigners from outside Lagos state ?

You know nothing.

If only you know the number of so called aboki that aren't even Nigerians

But from Niger and Chad. Painful thing is that it's almost late as it's hard to identify nor stop them

Same in nairaland, where you find some people acting so strange to their fellow countrymen with high level of hatred. It's only a foreigner that can be so shameless in instigating crises amongst fellow Nigerians. Due to the fact that they are not related to anyone in the country, so they have no sympathy for the hardship Nigerians are going through. I am very sure these wicked foreigners deliberately vote in funny characters just to punish the peace loving people of the country. Smh.
