The Governor gave the order while speaking with all DPOs and Area Commanders across the State at the Lagos House, Ikeja.
According to the directive, six local government areas were affected. They include; Ikeja, Surulere, Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland, Lagos Island, and Apapa.
While giving the directive, the governor urged the officers to ensure total enforcement of the ban. He, however, revealed that other security agencies will join in the enforcement, which will take effect from June 1, 2022.
The ban followed the gruesome murder of a Sound Engineer, David on Sunday May 15, 2022.
David was lynched and burnt by some irate okada riders in the Lekki area of the state, a sad incident over which 10 suspects were already in the police net.

The mob also attacked and injured two other members of the band including a saxophonist, Francis Olatunji, and the keyboardist, Philip Balogun.
Many Lagosians have condemned the action of the okada riders, and called on government to curb their excesses.
This is not the first time Lagos State is announcing a ban on operation of okada in some parts of the State but implementation has not been very effective.
