As part of measures to curb insecurity in the state, the Ondo State Government has banned the activities of commercial motorcyclists popularly known as ‘Okadas‘, from the state’s section of the  Benin-Ore-Shagamu Expressway.

The government said it took the decision following its observation that some unscrupulous elements were hiding under the guise of engaging in motorcycle business to perpetrate crimes on the expressway.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Ondo State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Donald Ojogo, on Thursday.

According to the statement, the government was disturbed by the activities of the criminal elements which include armed robbery and kidnapping.

Ojogo said, “The Ondo State Government has placed a total ban on commercial motorcycles along the entire stretch of the route in question. This action is with immediate effect and shall suffice until further notice.

“By this development, all activities of commercial motorcyclists are henceforth, restricted to internal confines of Ore town (in Odigbo Local Government Area of the state) and other communities in the area.

“To this end, the government had directed all the security agencies in the state, especially the Nigeria Police, to apprehend anyone who flouted the restriction order.

“The government appeals to the general public to co-operate with the security agencies in the state in the enforcement of this action in order to stem the growing rate of criminal activities along the area,” the government urged.
