Lagos govt crushes over 1500 seized motorcycles over violation of traffic laws

 

 

No fewer than 1500 motorcycles also known as ‘Okada’ has been impounded and destroyed by Lagos State Government for violation of traffic laws.

It was learnt that the exercise was carried out by the Ministry of Transportation at the Crush Plant, Taskforce Yard, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, on Monday.

The operation was monitored by a delegation led by the Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr Wale Musa.

Speaking at the event, Osiyemi stated that over 1,500 motorcycles impounded in the last six months were slated for crushing as part of the zero tolerance on the illegal activity.

He said; “Okada riders should embrace the many alternative modes of transportation provided by the government as there were plans to inject more First and Last Mile buses into the metropolis.

“I urge the riders to continue to stay off the roads because the crushing exercise and enforcement will be sustained.

“There is no going back because it’s government policy and the government does not joke about its decisions.”
