Calm Returns To Agege Motor Road After Lagos Task Force, ‘Okada’ Riders Clash

Calm has relatively returned to Agege Motor Road, specifically on Ikeja Along Bus Stop, after a clash between members of the Lagos State Task Force and commercial motorcycle operators was earlier reported.

The entire stretch of the Agege Motor Road is free of commercial motorcycle riders, as the Lagos Task Force team, led by its Chairman, Olayinka Egbeyeme is on the ground to avert further disorder in the area.

The attack on officers of the Lagos Task Force is a fallout of Tuesday’s clash between operatives of the Task Force and commercial motorcycle riders at Second Rainbow along Apapa-Oshodi Expressway.

Egbeyemi explained that his men were attacked in the early hours of today while on their beat along Agege Motor Road. He confirmed that some of the attackers have been arrested.

 

Court To Hear Suit Challenging Lagos Ban Of Motorcycles, Tricycles On Dec 15

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has fixed December 15  to hear a suit seeking the reversal of the ban placed by the Lagos State Government on the operations of commercial motorcycles and tricycles, popularly known as Okada and Keke Marwa.

A Lagos-based lawyer, Julius Ajibulu, who filed the suit said the ban on okada and keke Marwa, without a replacement or an alternative means of transportation, had subjected Lagosians to untold hardship and taken away the source of livelihood of the operators.

The lawyer claimed that the ban had led to massive unemployment and an escalation in the rate of crime and insecurity in the state due to loss of jobs.

He said the ban further violated his fundamental rights and those of other Lagosians under sections 33, 34, 36, 38, 41 and 42 of the 1999 Constitution.

Ajibulu is asking the court to order “the immediate resumption of commercial operations and activities of tricyles (Keke NAPEP/ Marwa) and motorcycles (okada) of 50cc-200cc capacity engine on the above stated highways and expressways through the aforesaid bridges in 15 local government and local development council areas of Lagos State.”

He is also seeking damages in the sum of N1bn as well as a public apology in newspapers.

The suit is the second lawsuit seeking the reversal of the Lagos State Government’s ban on okada and Keke Marwa.

Another lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, had earlier filed a suit before the same court on the same issue.

In his suit before Justice Mohammed Liman, Ogungbeje is seeking a declaration that “the forceful impounding, seizure or confiscation of motorcycles and tricycles” by agents of the Lagos State Government amounted to an infringement on the right of residents to own property under sections 43 and 44 of the Constitution.”

The Lagos State Government had in February proscribed both motorcycles and tricycles in six local governments and nine local council development areas of the state.

In a statement issued on January, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotosho, said that the riders must not ply 10 major highways and 40 bridges and flyovers across the state.

Lawyer Sues Lagos Govt Over Ban On Okada, Keke

A legal practitioner, Olukoya Ogungbeje, has filed a suit at the Federal High Court in Lagos to challenge the ban imposed by the state government on the operations of commercial motorcycles, popularly known as okada, and tricycles otherwise known as keke.

Ogungbeje asked the court to declare that the ban, as issued in February by Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, was not backed by any court order as it “grossly violates Section 41 of the Constitution.”

He also urged the court to make a perpetual injunction restraining the Lagos State government from enforcing the ban.

The lawyer specifically asked the court to award N500 million as general and exemplary damages against the state for the alleged violation of citizens’ rights.

Apart from the state government, he joined the Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences Unit, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, the state’s Attorney-General; the Commissioner of Police in Lagos; the Vehicle Inspection Service; and the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, as defendants in the suit.

Ogungbeje, who argued that the ban had visited untold hardship on him and other law-abiding Nigerians living in Lagos, prayed the court to declare that “the forceful impounding, seizure or confiscation of motorcycles and tricycles” by agents of the state government amounted to an infringement on the right of residents to own property under Sections 43 and 44 of the Constitution.

He also asked the court to declare that the power given to agents of the state, under the Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law 2018, to arrest and punish violators of the ban was equivalent to the usurpation of the functions of the judiciary, “and is thus a gross infringement on the right to a fair hearing and human dignity under Sections 36 and 34 of the Constitution.”

The case has been assigned to Justice Mohammed Liman who has fixed September 28, 2020, for hearing.

Okada, Keke Ban Is Mainly About Security And Safety – Hamzat

 

The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Mr Obafemi Hamzat, during his appearance on Politics Today on February 12, 2020.

 

 

The Lagos State government has insisted that there is no going back on the decision to ban motorcycles and tricycles popularly known as okada and keke respectively.

The deputy governor of the state, Mr Obafemi Hamzat, stated this during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.

He explained that the government took the decision following the rate of crime and accidents recorded on major roads and highways in the state.

Hamzat, however, dismissed the claims that the ban was targeted at anyone or group, saying the Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration was only implementing existing laws in the state.

“The truth of the matter is that it is a law that has been in existence since 2012. It was revised by the past administration in 2018. So, it is a law that has been there for like nine, 10 years.

“We all know that it was not implemented; so what we are doing is to implement the law. It’s not that we just woke up and banned them. It is about the security of lives,” he said.

According to the deputy governor, the law states clearly that okada and keke are restricted from certain roads, all the bridges, and major highways in the state.

He noted that the rate of accidents recorded from okada since the government implemented the ban has reduced significantly.

Hamzat decried that okada and keke were used by some criminal elements to perpetrate crimes such as drug trafficking and theft among others.

He said, “We have 27 general hospitals in Lagos. On a monthly basis on the average, 28 deaths are related to okada directly.”

“And then, the issue of crime; we now found out that the tricycles and motorcycles are now the vehicles for transporting drugs even to our schools.

“So, the security of lives, the prosperity of our children cannot just be ignored,” the deputy governor stressed.

We’re Not Going Back On Okada, Keke Ban – Sanwo-Olu

The Lagos State Government says it will not reverse the ongoing enforcement of its Transport Sector Reform Law of 2018, which restricts the operations of commercial motorcycles, popularly known as Okada and tricycles, popularly known as Keke NAPEP in 15 local councils across the state.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said this on Tuesday while speaking at the official launch of commercial operations in water transportation by Lagos Ferry Services (LAGFERRY) at an event held at Badore Ferry Terminal in Ajah.

The governor said the state government would not give in to the “blackmail and uninformed criticism” of its decision to restrict tricycles and motorcycles on the highways, saying the enforcement became necessary in the face of growing threats to the security of lives of residents.

According to him, the scary figures of accidents resulting from Okada riders’ recklessness and the disobedience to traffic laws necessitated the enforcement of the laws.

Although the governor admitted that the decision was a tough one, he maintained that his government would not compromise on the issue of security and safety of residents.

“I agree it’s a tough decision we made regarding the restriction of Okada and Keke in some parts of Lagos. But I want to say some facts, which people can debate. The restriction that we have done is primarily based on security and safety of lives of residents. We took the decision based on the level of danger we have seen to have happened to our people,” he said.

“As a responsible government, we will not fold our arms and allow Okada riders put our lives in danger. One life is more important to us than all the economic benefits to be made if we allowed them to continue. We understand that investment too can be critical, but keeping people alive and safe is more germane.”

Speaking further, the governor sympathized with commuters affected by the Okada restriction and announced that the government would be deploying over 500 buses to the routes listed in the restriction directive as alternatives to ease movement.

He added that the launching of commercial operations on waterways by LAGFERRY was another programme introduced by the government to address congestion on the highways.

Calm has returned to Ijora-Olopa area of Lagos where protesters burnt tyres to protest the ban of commercial motorcycles and tricycles in the state on Monday.

When Channels TV got to the scene of the incident, policemen and men of the OP MESA (A joint military operation) were seen addressing a group of people in an apparent move to ascertain those involved in the act.

There were traces of bonfire with shattered glasses at the scene.

Eyewitnesses told Channels TV that protesters hurled stones before security operatives contained the situation.

On Saturday, the Lagos state government started to implement its ban on okada and tricycles in parts of the state.

Nobody Has Been Licenced To Run Okada Services – Lagos Govt

Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotosho, speaks during an interview on Sunrise Daily on January 28, 2020.

 

 

The Lagos State government says it has not given licence to any person or group to operate commercial services with motorcycles, otherwise known as okada.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy in the state, Gbenga Omotosho, stated this during his appearance on Sunrise Daily.

“You are talking about registration; as far as I am concern, the government has not registered any company to come and be running okada,” he told Channels Television on Tuesday.

He added, “In fact, what the government was trying to look at is how to regulate these people so that their excesses can be curtailed.

“But as far as I know, nobody has been licenced to go and start running okada because it is unfortunate that … the rate at which people are dying; the rate at which people are being robbed on the roads; the police are worried, everybody is worried.”

He made the comments a day after the government announced that it would enforce the ban on motorcycles and tricycles (also known as keke) on major roads and bridges on February 1.

Omotosho explained that the State Security Council took the decision after a robust assessment of the debate on the rate of accidents in the state.

According to him, the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) recorded about 104,000 accident cases involving the common Lagosians with broken arms and legs.

The commissioner stressed that a large number of those he called the poor people have asked the government to ban okada.

He noted that the areas with the highest figures of fatalities were areas dominated by a large population of poor.

Omotosho, however, said, “The guys who are doing courier services, for example, they don’t carry passengers and they don’t constitute so much danger. So, those ones are allowed.

“They have to be above 200cc and you have to have a box behind you that you are doing courier service and you don’t have to carry passengers; you have to be well-kitted and wear your helmet.”

Lagos Govt Decries Accident Rate, To Enforce Okada, Keke Ban On February 1

A file photo of commercial motorcycles.

 

 

The Lagos State government has decried the rate of motorcycle (okada) and tricycle (keke) accidents on roads across the state.

In order to check this, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, announced that the government would enforce the ban on motorcycles and tricycles in six local government areas, as well as major highways and bridges from February 1.

He explained that the decision was taken after a robust assessment of the debate on the rate of accidents in Lagos, saying security and safety of the lives of the residents were paramount.

“The figures are scary. From 2016 to 2019, there were over 10,000 accidents recorded at the General Hospitals alone.

“This number excludes unreported cases and those recorded by other hospitals. The total number of deaths from reported cases is over 600 as at date,” the commissioner said in a statement.

He added, “The rate of crimes aided by motorcycles (okada) and tricycles (keke) keeps rising.  Motorcycles (okada) and tricycles (keke) are also used as getaway means by criminals.”

According to Omotoso, the law enforcement agents have been directed that with effect from February 1, there would be Zero Tolerance for motorcycles and tricycles in the affected areas.

He warned that all offenders and violators would be dealt with in accordance with the laws of the state.

Police Announce New ‘Okada’ Restriction In Ogun

Police Announce New 'Okada' Restriction In OgunThe Ogun State Police Command has announced a restriction order from 8PM to 5AM for commercial motorcycle operators popularly called okada.

This is in view of the approaching yuletide and a likely upsurge in criminal activities during the festive period.

According to a statement issued by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi, no okada operator is permitted to convey more than one passenger during operation all over the state.

The Command warned that “anyone who violates this order will be arrested, his motorcycle impounded and subsequently charged to court accordingly’.’

The Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, has also appealed to the general public for understanding and co-operation and also assured residents of the state of adequate security of life and properties before, during and after the yuletide.

Police Commissioner In Ogun Builds Orphanage In Home Town

Ogun Police commissionerOgun State Commissioner of Police, AbdulMajid Ali, has commissioned a four million Naira ultra-modern orphanage in Kontagora Local Government Area of Niger State, his home town.

Mr Ali donated the facility to both the State and the Local Governments for the day-to-day running of the edifice.

He handed over the facility after official commissioning of the project by Mr Shehu Umar Danyaya, Secretary to the State Government, who represented the State Governor, Mr Abubakar Sani Bello.

The Police Boss stated that his decision to build the multi-million Naira edifice was an attempt to give back to the society, which he said that made him what he was.

Mr Ali also said that the building was in fond memory of his late daughter, Miss Mujidat, a 200 Level student of Igbinedon University, Okada, Edo State, who died some years ago in an auto crash within the campus of the private university.

He said: “I am a Civil Servant, I am specifically a Police officer and it is not something out of context to give back to the society that has contributed immensely to what I am today.

“However, it is a challenge to the present day politicians not only in Niger State, but the country as a whole to let them show more to the yearnings of the society, especially to the less privilege people in the society”.

He also mentioned that the governors of Ogun and Imo States, Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha respectively were part of the project’s success.

“This one is just my own contribution, especially the small one I can do and I promise that I will continue to do more the way I have started this one.

“I am retiring to my farm, after my service in the Nigeria Police Force with the view to going home and staying calm, because I do not want to be part of any political association or group,” Ali said.

“Yes, one has to come back to his hometown because I started from here and even though I am to come back after the Service and it is better to put a solid Foundation for yourself when you are still agile,” he said.

The ceremony was attended by the Emir of Kontagora, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Saidu Namaska, Col.Sani Bello (Rtd) and a former Deputy Inspector General of Police (Rtd), Nuhu Aliyu, among other prominent citizens.
