The Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday imposed a “total ban” on okadas in some parts of the state.

This direction followed the gruesome murder of a Sound Engineer, David.

David was lynched and burnt by some irate okada riders in the Lekki area of the state, a sad incident over which 10 suspects were already in the police net.

Speaking with all DPOs and Area Commanders across the state at the Lagos House, Ikeja, Sanwo-Olu said the directive covers all highways and some local governments.

They include Eti-Osa, Ikeja, Surulere, Lagos Island, Lagos Mainland and Apapa.

The governor said other security agencies will join in the enforcement.
