Court Hears Suit Against Lagos Okada Ban Dec 15




The Federal High Court in Lagos has fixed December 15, 2020 to hear a suit praying for the reversal of the ban placed by the Lagos State Government on the operations of commercial motorcycles and tricycles, popularly known as okada and Keke Marwa, respectively, in parts of the state.

A Lagos-based lawyer, Julius Ajibulu, who filed the suit before Justice Chuka Obiozor, said the ban on okada and Keke Marwa, without a replacement with an alternative means of transport, had subjected Lagosians to untold hardship and taken away the source of livelihood of the operators.

The lawyer claimed that the ban and the attendant job loss had led to “massive unemployment” and an escalation in the rate of crime and insecurity in Lagos State.

He said the ban violated his fundamental rights and those of other Lagosians under sections 33, 34, 36, 38, 41 and 42 of the 1999 Constitution.

Ajibulu is praying the court to order “the immediate resumption of commercial operations and activities of tricyles (Keke NAPEP/ Marwa) and motorcycles (okada) of 50cc-200cc capacity engine on the above stated highways and expressways through the aforesaid bridges in the above 15 local government and local development council areas of Lagos State.”

He is also seeking damages in the sum of N1bn as well as a public apology in newspapers.

Ajibulu’s is the second lawsuit against the Lagos State Government over the ban on okada and Keke Marwa.

Another lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, is also before the Federal High Court, praying that the ban be reversed.
