Due to the Okada ban in some areas within the Lagos metropolis, some affected riders are currently embroiled in a violent clash with officers of the Nigerian Police in Ijora Olopa area.
This was based on a viral video tweeted by Gidi Traffic on Monday, February 3.
“Clash and shooting reportedly ongoing at Ijora Olopa area due to Okada ban. Police with Okada and Keke riders. Pls avoid that route for now,” the traffic watch media outfit wrote on its Twitter page.
In reaction to the update, Nigerians faulted the Lagos state government over the initiation.
According to TeniWealth, Nigerians should not honour a government that is placing a burden on them.
“This is it. We shouldn’t honour government that isn’t giving her citizenship anything good other than more burden. People should revolt,” the Twitter user said.
“@gidifeedtv: JUST IN: Serious fight and shooting going at Ijora Olopa, Lagos.
