Commercial cyclists defy ban on okada

                                                  Okada riders

Commercial motorcycle operators are currently defying the ban placed on their activities in Abuja city by the Federal Capital Territory authorities. The ban, which has been in place since 2006, restricts the operations of the commercial cyclists, also known as okada riders,  to only satellite towns. It forbids them from operating in all parts of the city centre, including Asokoro, Garki, Maitama, Wuse, Mabushi, Utako and Jabi.
A report shows that despite efforts by law enforcement agencies to ensure compliance with the ban, some of the cyclists have resumed activities in Asokoro, a highbrow area in the city centre, in defiance of the restriction order.
