Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that the ban of okada and keke in some major Lagos roads led to violence on the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway. Some irate okada riders were seen attacking a BRT bus on the expressway causing a slight delay and roadblock.
It took the intervention of some military men passing on the road before the situation was brought under control.
It was gathered that despite the ban, some brave okada riders have continued plying the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway in spite of the ban.
The riders were seen on Lagos-Abeokuta expressway picking stones and pelting the BRT buses around Ile-Zik end of the expressway.
The commotion started after a car hit an okada rider and the attempt an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management to ease off the traffic at the scene proved abortive until military men came on the scene.
