A list of roads Keke and Okada operators were restricted from plying surfaced a few days ago

This statement is coming after a list of restricted routes for Keke and Okada operators made the rounds on social media a few days ago.

The state government has denounced the list, saying it's 'false and unofficial' and shouldn't be paid attention to.

Since the list surfaced online, there have been mixed feelings from Lagosians.Especially the residents of Lagos Island, who pointed out that Keke has been their only means of transportation as it links them up to Obandele, CMS and other major roads.

The Lagos State Government debunked the list, saying it's false

The Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon. Gbenga Omotoso, who released the statement debunking the list, said the government's stance on the issue will be publicized via its official media channels.

Naijauto gathered that the commissioner made known the reason for the government's delay earlier on at a Security Council meeting which took place on January 13.

He said,

We have just concluded our routine security meeting, during which the issue of Okada and tricycles was discussed exhaustively. For now, no major decision has been taken on the matter. There are several factors for this development, but the main reason was to reckon with various opinions expressed by stakeholders.
