Here is why ‘Okada’ and ‘Marwa’ operators are arrested in Ikeja

In recent times, the operations of riders of motorcycles and tricycles better known as ‘Okada’ and ‘Keke Marwa’ in Lagos Mainland have been restricted to certain routes and inner streets in the communities they operate.

This is as a result of the rapid developments across these Lagos Mainland communities and the grand plan by government to continually ensure the state achieves its Mega City status.

With the operators of Okadas and Keke Marwa having little or no understanding of the restricted routes which often leads to the law enforcement agencies clamping down on them, InsideMainland has exclusively obtained the list of restricted routes for Okadas and Marwa from the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).

As a result, InsideMainland will daily, share the list of restricted routes across the LGs and LCDAs that falls under the Lagos Mainland.
