There has been outrage on Twitter as commuters lament over the ban on motorcycles (Okada) and tricycles in Lagos state, southwest Nigeria.

Concise News reports that the state government had on 26 January announced that it would commence enforcement of the extant Transport Sector Reform Law 2020 from February 1.

The law banned the operation of motorcycles in some local government areas, local council development areas, highways, bridges and roads.

Though the Lagos government on Sunday directed the management of Lagos Bus Services Limited (LBSL) to deploy a fleet of buses to some major routes, commuters have shared their pains as a result of the ban.

Some users who go from mainland to Island and vice versa through the use of motorcycles and tricycles to make their journeys faster have lamented long queues at bus stops and delay in getting to their places of work.
