Okada Ban: Lagos Set To Crush Another 2,228 Motorcycles by adenigga(m): 7:20am On Jun 03
The Lagos State Task Force is set to crush another set of 2,228 impounded commercial motorcycles popularly called Okada on Friday (today).

The Chairman of the taskforce, CSP Shola Jejeloye, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

The statement was signed by the Director, Press and Public Affairs, Gbadeyan Abdulraheem.

Abdulraheem quoted Jejeloye as saying that the agency will intensify its effort in ensuring that all impounded motorcycles are crushed after following the due process.

The statement read in part “Following the announcement of a total ban on operation of commercial motorcycles popularly known as Okada on all highways across six local government areas and nine local council development areas of the state by the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babatunde Sanwo-Olu, the Chairman of the Lagos State Taskforce, CSP Shola Jejeloye, has said that the agency will on Friday crush another set of 2,228 impounded motorcycles to further make the enforcement of the ban thorough and effective.

“The chairman stated that the laws are very clear for Okada operators to see that their actions are in complete violation of the Transport Reform Laws of the state.”

Jejeloye noted that although the compliance rate of the Okada operators is high and encouraging, they (operators) are still not to be trusted.

He added, “Their style of operation is synonymous to guerrilla warfare- when we retreat, they advance, and when we advance, they retreat, but enforcement on the ban has come to stay.

“We will ensure not a single offender operating his okada on the highways will be spared. We will keep watch and continue patrolling the affected parts of the state to ensure they do not get back on our roads.”

He said the agency had impounded over 259 bikes during the first two days of the ban while 18 suspected riders and passengers were arrested.

“All the suspects will be prosecuted for violating the state laws. Passengers will not be spared this time around, and they will be charged accordingly in the court of law,” the statement added.

Thiefnibu you and your ATM Sanwo Olu should stop punishing Northerners because their brother Buhari denied you the Presidency.
Are you saying the Nigeria northerners are the only persons who indulge in that business throughout Lagos?
You folks just open your wide mouth to spew hate and nonsense..

The Lagos government gave reasons for the ban and you are here talking out of point..why do you folks love complaining all day..they act you complain..they don't you still wail..

KipeDadiya:

Bro, Good evening. Your analysis got me …. Pls How true was that?
All very true, and Greatness runs in all Olukumi Blood (Yoruba Blood). Olukumis know thyself! Haven't you wondered why Hiphop Songs with Yorubas lyrics is ever melodius in the Ears of every Humanity. No matter the Country you go, you see those that don't even understand what is being said moving to the Melodius Yoruba Rythym. This is because their Soul understands the Language that our CREATOR Spoke with Adam and Eve, the Original Hebrew Language is Yoruba. The evidence is still very Visible in the Aramaic Hebrew and other Hebrew being Spoken today. The first Breathe of the CREATOR was into Adam the First Olukunmi then unto the rest of Humanity. There are White People inside we Black People, but their are not Black People inside white People because they don't have the Capacity to Carry us. They Descnded from us as their Father and Mother. The whole World is upside down Today because Satan got the White People to Break the Law of "Honour Thy Father and Thy Mother!"

But lately, our Yoruba youths were deceived because they don't know their own History. Yorubas are Specially Created Spiritual Beings, the Original Code of Pure Humanity's Creation is still Retained undiluted in Yorubas. Both ALMIGHTY CREATOR of Humanity and Satan value Yorubas as greatly Treasured Beings. Haven't you ever wondered?! Other African tribes created Churches just as Yorubas did to Serve CREATOR of Humanity but non of theirs was Internationally Enthroned and Celebrated as the Ones of Olukumis (means we Truly carry HIM unpolluted) The first 5 African Churches dominating the whole World and Reconnecting Humanity back to our CREATOR were founded by HIM through Yorubas. Other tribes Created Occults like Arochukwu, etc. Yetbthey remain Local forever, non of theirs is even National let alone Globally Grounded as the Ones of Created by Yorubas which even in the Western World has not just Africans but many White People all around the World as Members of the Occults which Yorubas Created. People are not fools, they know they truly uncommonly get Connected to the Spiritual Realm by through the Spiritual Establishment of Yorubas. Ask yourself why the Greatest African Pastors in the World are Yorubas and the Greatest African Occult (Ogboni Confratanity) in the World are Yorubas.

The True Greatness of Black Africa shall only fully Manifest when Yorubas wake up to fully Connect with the CREATOR of Heaven and Earth because Adam and Eve were Yoruba and the Original Hebrew Language was more Yoruba known as Olukumi (in those days before Satan raised deceivers against the. Olukumi People).

Even the current President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Ado, also idolizes Awolowo as a result of witnessing the Unprecedented Great Achievements which Nkwame Nkruma started implementating for Ghana after he started mingling the Great Obafemi Awolowo which resulted in the Wisdom and Passion of the Greatest African Sage ever liveth rubbing off on him. Many great Visions which Azikwe's gang up against Awolowo didn't allow him to implement in Nigeria was passed to kwame Nkuruma. Till today, the Atomic Energy Electricity Generating Project that Awolowo inspired him to do for Ghanaians is still standing uncomplete today. The whole Area is named Atomic, even though the Atomic Project was immediately abandoned after death of Nkuruma, they still have the beautiful Staff Quarters, Hospital, Police Station, etc that was established to serve the Staffers there still being inhabited and maintained till date.

Sincerely, if Awolowo had become the President of Nigeria, by now Nigeria would have been more advance than many Western Countries. This is why the Colonial Masters are also being fingered to have hand in the Nigerian disunity back then.

As a matter of fact, the unprecedented change that happened to Kwame Nkwuruma after he started relating with Awolowo created in young Akufo Ado a special Interest to mingle and relate with Yorubas. He soon started dating a Yoruba lady, who he was determined to marry until his mom said he must marry from his Ashanti tribe. The mom said not even an Ewe tribe or any other Ghana tribe would be accepted except their very own Ashanti tribe. The relationship was so hard to break, finally they had the first Child together, name Oluwafunmilayo Akufo Ado. Even though Akufo Ado finally yielded to Pressure and married another lady, yet he doesn't joke with the current First Daughter of Ghana; Funmi Akufo Ado, his beautiful Yoruba daughter. You can Google the Name Funmi Akufo Ado to clear any iota of doubting Thomas in you.

One thing you cannot take away from Tinubu is his audacity , ruthlessness and manoeuvres. which the Northern elites are even wary of.


Buhari made Tinubu's ambition an uphill task especially to a good fraction of the discerning public thay are still miffed that Asiwaju brought and wore a nepotistic ,corrupt PMB with a garb of a saint, and worse his below par performance or outright failure is staring at us all. BAT cannot absolve himself of this administration's ineptitude and that's his current Achilles heel.



Unfortunately,at the moment, Buhari has nothing to lose.

I see a large number of those okada being smuggled out of the Lagos State taskforce office and auctioned off to nearby states. Only the rickety looking ones will be crushed.

This I have seen.
