Akeredolu Bans Okada, Unauthorised Tinted Vehicles In Ondo

Akeredolu inaugurates new commissioner, special adviser

Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has banned the operation of commercial motorcycles locally known as Okada from the roads after 6 pm.

His decision, he said, followed the surge in the spate of kidnapping and armed robbery in the state.

The operators will henceforth operate between 6 am and 6 pm.

Commissioner for Information Donald Ojogo in a statement on Friday said anyone found flouting the directive would have his motorcycle impounded.

The governor also banned all vehicles with unauthorised tinted glasses from plying the roads.

He said tinted vehicles without duly certified permit issued by a relevant security agency would be impounded.

“The Ondo State Government has noted with concern, the worrisome spike in crime rate across the state,” the statement read.

“In particular, security reports at the disposal of Government are considered signs deserving of serious attention.

“Specifically, the last one week witnessed an unimaginable upsurge in robbery, kidnapping and in some cases, murder. This is no doubt, condemnable.

“Government, therefore, urges all security agencies to come out and confront this abhorrent development. Every necessary support, in terms of both human and logistics aids shall be provided to ensure the safety of residents within the state.”
