On Friday, June 3, the Lagos State Task Force will crush another batch of 2,228 impounded commercial motorcycles known as Okadas.

According to The Punch, the taskforce’s leader, CSP Shola Jejeloye, a chief superintendent of police, announced the announcement in a statement released on Thursday, June 2.

Gbadeyan Abdulraheem, the director of publicity and public relations, signed the statement.

Following the announcement of a total ban on operation of commercial motorcycles popularly known as Okada on all highways across six local government areas and nine local council development areas of the state by the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Sanwo-Olu, the Chairman of the Lagos State Taskforce, CSP Shola Jejeloye, has said that the agency will on Friday crush another set of 2,228 impounded motorcycles to further make the enforcement of the ban thorough and effective.
