LAGOS GOVT HAS BANNED OKADA AND KEKE MARWA FROM PLYING THE ROADS LISTED BELOW. The Okada and Keke Ban in Six Local Government Areas was announced by Lagos State Government and Enforcement Begins February 1, 2020.

 

After a robust assessment of the debate on what has been widely referred to as the Motorcycle (Okada) and Tricycle (Keke) Menace, the Lagos State Government and the State Security Council have decided that the security and safety of lives of Lagosians are 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 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.

Therefore, after consultations with stakeholders, the State Security Council, in compliance with the extant Transport Sector Reform Law 2018, has decided to commence enforcement of the law which bans the operation of Motorcycles (Okada) and Tricycles (Keke) in the following Local Governments (LGs) and Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs):
 Apapa LG and Apapa Iganmu LCDA
 Lagos Mainland LG and Yaba LCDA
 Surulere LG, Itire-Ikate and Coker-Aguda LCDAs
 Ikeja LG, Onigbongbo and Ojodu LCDAs
 Eti-Osa LG, Ikoyi-Obalende and Iru/Victoria Island LCDAs
 Lagos Island LG and Lagos Island East LCDA


This is the first stage of the State Government’s plan to sanitize our roads and protect Lagosians from the negative effects of these illegal modes of transportation. The Law is very clear. Motorcycles (Okada) and Tricycles (Keke) are banned on all highways, bridges and the listed roads.
