The Lekki Phase I Residents Association (LERA) has raised concerns about a possible attack on their neighbourhood by commercial motorcycle riders known as Okada riders.



The warning came only hours after the Lagos State government issued a total ban on commercial motorcycles on all highways in six LGAs and nine local council development zones (LCDAs). Eti-Osa, Ikeja, Surulere, Lagos Island, Lagos Mainland, and Apapa, as well as all LCDAs within them, are affected.

Residents have reported the extraordinary presence of hoodlums in certain uncompleted buildings in the region, according to the Chairman of LERA, Yomi Idowu.

“Intelligence reports reaching us are that following the raid on Okada riders and subsequent seizure of their bikes in Lekki Phase 1 by officials of Lagos State Taskforce, the riders, who believe the action was instigated by Lekki residents, are planning to attack the residents,” he said

Idowu urged the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to enforce the total ban on Okada.
