MAN JUMPS OUT OF A MOVING POLICE VAN AS A WAY OF ESCAPE…


This morning at about 9:00 am, the uniform men- THE Nigerian Police stormed Pako bus-stop, situated along the University of Lagos/ St Finbarrs College Road Akoka, seizing commercial motorcycles (popularly known as Okada) as well as arresting the riders. None of the riders made any attempt to battle for their bikes. They either surrendered the bikes or ran for their dear lives.

However, a few of the riders were arrested while their motorcycles were seized. One of the riders not knowing what his fate will be when he gets to the police station, put his fate in his hands by jumping out of the moving police van. The rider ran non stop without looking back.

One of Ogefash’s correspondents who saw the Okada rider jump out of the vehicle decided to ask the typical spectators the reason for the police invasion. Ogefash’s Styl Media house gathered from the spectators that the Lagos state government has decided to ban the use of these commercial motorcycles (okada) in Lagos.

As at the time of filing this report, the areas they have been to are Abule Ijesha and all the bus-stops along Unilag road.
