Lagosians use Horses on Monday morning following government ban on Okada, Keke
Horse riders have been seen in different parts of Lagos, cashing in on Monday, February 3 while conveying commuters, following the implementation of the 2012 Lagos Traffic Rule which restricts commercial motorcycles, popularly called Okada and commercial tricycles, popularly called Marwa, from plying highways and major roads across the state.
The February 1, 2020 restriction order cuts across six local government areas, nine local council development areas, 10 major highways and 40 bridges and flyovers across Lagos.
The state government, through its Commissioner for Information & Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotosho, said the decision was in response to the ‘scary figures’ of fatal accidents recorded from Okada and tricycle operators in the state between 2016 and 2019.
