Following the recent ban of motorbikes (popularly known as okadas) and tricycles (keke napep or marwa) in Lagos State, Plat4om approached a few bike riders in Maryland area.
The Lagos State government banned the operations of motorcycle and tricycle operators in 15 local councils and major roads. The law banned these vehicles in some Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas.
The councils where the motorbikes and tricycles are banned include Apapa LGA, Apapa Iganmu LCDA, Lagos Mainland LG, Yaba LCDA, Surulere LGA, Itire-Ikate, and Coker-Aguda LCDAs, Ikeja LGA, Onigbongbo and Ojodu LCDAs, Eti-Osa LGA, Ikoyi-Obalende, and Iru/Victoria Island LCDAs, Lagos Island LGA and Lagos Island East LCDA.

Most of the riders we approached worked for bike-hailing firms like Opay, Gokada and Max NG. Their reactions gave us a glimpse into how much this ban would affect their lives and families.
