Insecurity: Okada riders defy Ondo Governor's restriction order

THE Commercial motorcyclists widely known as Okada on Friday defied Ondo state Governor's directive that they should close at 6pm daily owing to growing insecurity in the state.

VAM News recalls that Akeredolu Oluwarotimi(SAN), has restricted operation time of okada riders in the state to between 6 am and 6 pm and also bar private individuals from using tainted cars in the state.

But many okada riders were sighted carrying passengers till after 9 pm on Friday night in some major area of the state capital.

According to report, those Bikemen who refused to give their names, said they carry more passengers at night than during the day.


They urged Ondo Governor, Akeredolu to fish out the criminals instead of restricting their working hours.

Noting that, the Special Adviser to Governor Akeredolu on Special Duties, Dr. Doyin Odebowale, insisted that any okada rider caught violating the directive would be made to face the music.

Dr. Odebowale said motorcycles of defaulters would be impounded

According to him, “The government has been compelled to take the decision because of growing insecurity in the state especially in Akure, the capital city. In the last four days, robbery incidences have been linked to motorcycle riders. Whoever wants to test the will of the government will be detained."
