In a continued onslaught on violators of the state traffic laws, operatives of the Lagos State Taskforce, have raided Oshodi and Ikorodu roads, during which 48 people were arrested.
The raid, which was led by the chairman of the agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye, was carried out during the closing hours, and 37 commercial motorcycles, also known as Okada, were impounded.
“It is disheartening to see these recalcitrant riders operating their bikes commercially, endangering the lives of their passengers and pedestrians on the state highways despite the ban still being in place.
“We have sent out a series of warnings through our official channels, but it fell on deaf ears with some of them, thus the need to carry out this enforcement exercise,’’ he said.
In a related development, the taskforce also carried out an extensive raid of suspected spots patronised by hoodlums along Oshodi Bridge, Mosafejo and Army Arena axis where 48 suspects were apprehended.
