The Lagos State Government has extended the ban on commercial motorcycles, (okada) to four more Local Government Areas and five Local Council Development Areas.
The ban is to be enforcement from September 1, 2022.
The Commissioner for Transport, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, confirmed this on Thursday.
According to Oladeinde, the decision was taken after a review of the earlier ban on commercial motorcycles operation in six local councils.
The additional councils where the total Okada ban is pronounced include Kosofe Local Government, Oshodi-Isolo Local Government, Shomolu Local Government, and Mushin Local Government.
Others are Ikosi-Isherri LCDA, Agboyi-Ketu LCDA, Isolo LCDA, Bariga LCDA, and Odi-Olowo LCDA.
Oladeinde said the decision was taken in order to improve the peace and security of the state.
“Mr Governor has approved the ban of okada in another four LGAs and six LCDAs for the second phase of the total ban in addition to the ongoing ban in the six LGAs,” the commissioner said.
The Lagos government has so far placed a ban on okada in 10 LGAs in the state.
