The Lagos State Police Command has impounded 76 motorbikes on Eko and Akpongbon bridges, Alaka intersection and other areas in one week for plying prohibited routes.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said on Thursday that the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed that all the impounded motorbikes be taken to the Lagos State Taskforce for further actions.

“Following resolve to enforce traffic laws with particular focus on those driving against traffic, operating in areas prohibited for motorcycles (okada) and constituting nuisance in Lagos, the Lagos State Police Command in a special operation which began on 11th August 2021, has impounded within one week a total of 76 motorcycles on Eko bridge, Apongbon bridge, Alaka bridge intersection and other areas,” he said.

According to him, the CP has on many occasions, warned all cyclists and motorists with unbridled penchant for violating traffic laws with impunity to desist or risk arrest, adding that the special operation would continue until sanity is restored on Lagos roads.
