Lagos Sate impounds 105 Okadas, arrest 98

The Lagos State Joint Task Force Team comprising operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and the Lagos State Task Force Unit on Environment have arrested ninety-eight motorists and impounded one hundred and five motorcycles for flouting the State Traffic Laws.

The Head of the Joint Task Force, Mr. Olatunji Disu while briefing the press recently, affirmed that the operation would be a continuous exercise by the combined team in order to ensure that road users fully comply with the State Traffic Laws and Regulations.

He added that preliminary investigations by the Police have shown that robbery and other nefarious activities on our highways by men of underworld are aided by the use of motorcycles.

According to him, “this operation is embarked upon in order to ensure that sanity is brought back to the highways. This will in no small measure prevent traffic robbery and criminal attacks on innocent and law abiding motorists and commuters, which have become a menace in the metropolis”.

He noted that the law enforcement agencies would enforce total restriction of motorcycles on all unapproved routes and expressways in the State.

The impounded motorcycles and their riders have been handed over to the Lagos State Task Force on the Environment Unit for necessary legal action. Adding that, the arrests were made during a special operation by the law enforcement agencies.
