The Lagos State government has said it is considering an outright ban of motorcycles, popularly called Okada, in Ikoyi, Lekki and Victoria Island axis as their operations continue to pose security challenges to law enforcement agencies in the state.

The Lagos Traffic Law 2012 prohibits the operations of Okada and tricycles also known as Keke Marwa from operating in certain routes across the state, except those with 50cc engine capacities.

Acting commissioner for transportation, Olanrewaju Elegushi said the current administration had previously warned commercial motorcycles to steer clear of restricted routes, as the clampdown on defaulters would be total.
