The Okada ban by the Lagos state government which restricted the movement of bikes and Keke (motorcycles) has no doubt put many residents under untold hardship.

With Lagos frustrating traffic, many are having a hard time getting to work as their sole means of cutting traffic is no more.

Among ways to ensure they get to their workplaces on time is having to wake up on time so as to set out early.

In a recent video spotted by Legit.ng online, a man was seen trying to bypass the new law by turning his Okada into a dispatch bike.
