Commercial motorcyclists, otherwise known as Okada riders’ protest over the new Lagos State Traffic Laws on Wednesday turned violent in Majidun area of Ikorodu as they clashed with a team of policemen.

Reports say the Okada riders numbering over 300 took to the street at about 8am, wielding dangerous weapons, and in the process attacked a Lagos State Bus, LAGBUS, and also started a bonfire on the road forcing passengers to trek long distances before boarding buses to their respective destinations.

According to an eyewitness, on sighting a team of policemen approaching, the commercial motorcyclists began to hurl stones at them while fleeing in different directions.

In the process, one of them reportedly abandoned his bike and jumped into a lagoon, apparently to avoid being made a scapegoat.

Yesterday’s protest it was learnt was not unconnected with the seizure of several motorbikes by some policemen during Tuesday’s protest.

The new traffic laws bars commercial motorcyclists from plying 475 of the state’s over 9,000 roads.
