The Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences, Enforcement, Agency, is set for total clamp down on all recalcitrant okada operators on the restricted routes on Lagos Highways.
Its action is to free the state from the okada operators menace and their unruly attitudes threatening the security architecture of the State as encapsulated in the T.H.E.M.E.S. Agenda.
The action is in reaction to public outcry on okada riders aggressiveness on the Lagos highways, arson, mob attack of innocent citizens that may cause total breach of peace, unrestrained speed, total disregard to traffic rules and regulations.
To this end, the agency will embark on mass raid and confiscation of all Okada found on the highways, restricted routes and prosecute both the rider and passengers who are culprits, with a view to achieving the State’s vision of zero tolerance for Okada operation.
