The Lagos State Government has placed a total ban on the operations of commercial motorcyclists in six local governments in the state.

Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced the ban on Wednesday at a meeting with police area commanders and DPOS at the Lagos House, Ikeja.

Governor Sanwo-Olu stated that no commercial motorcyclists would be allowed to operate in any part of Ikeja, Surulere, Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland, Lagos Island and Apapa local councils from June 1.

“This is the phased banning that we are going to be embarking on so that others will know that in a short while it is either they get out or look for something else to do,” the governor stated.

The governor added that other security agencies will join in the enforcement of the ban.
