#OkadaBan: People are Reporting a Riot in Iyana Ipaja



Seems like the ban of okadas and Keke NAPEPs in Lagos State is hitting people a lot harder than the state government thought it would.

Residents of the state were on their way to work this morning when on their way, at Iyana Ipaja, they met what has been described as a riot.

Videos show people throwing stones, burning tyres, planks and a police van, and there have been reports of shootings, too.

They say okada riders, bus drivers and police officers are all involved in the riot.

    Nonsense…. ti ko ba se pe ori won ko pe noni….what nonsense
    So they think what they are doing is the appropriate way to address their discontent. so if someone is injured or killed now, under whose account is that. Sincerely I initially felt for them that this decision will be tough and the government has to compensate in some way but clearly the majority of them are thugs! I am yet to understand the rationale behind this. their approach to solving the matter was to destroy infrastructure and disrupt lives of their potential customers, they didn’t think to march to the government house and discuss their concerns. We have a big problem in this country!
