In a tweet on Sunday, Edafe stated, “The enforcement of the ban on motorcycles popularly called Okada is serious and that’s exactly how we take it.

The ban is real, so it’s better you carry your bike and lock it somewhere because Edafe Bright cannot help when it’s impounded. The directive from the State Government is to crush them all.”

The announcement was initially made by the Secretary to the State Government, Kingsley Emu, during a press briefing in Asaba on May 24.

The briefing covered the outcomes of the State Council Meeting presided over by the governor, Sheriff Oborevwori.

Emu explained that the ban on Okada was prompted by a significant increase in crimes and vandalism associated with the use of these motorcycles.

He highlighted that the decision was made to enhance security and reduce criminal activities in the state, with strict enforcement beginning on Saturday, June 1.

The state government’s decision underscores a commitment to addressing security concerns and ensuring the safety of its citizens.
