Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has banned the operation of commercial motorcyclists,  popularly called ‘Okada’ between  5pm and 8am daily in four local  government areas of the state for security  reasons. 

The ban takes effect on Sunday, 14th February, 2016.

The four local government areas include : Abua/Odual,  Ahoada East, Ahoada West and Ogba/Egbema /Ndoni (ONELGA).

A statement  by  Simeon Nwakaudu, Special Assistant to the Rivers State Governor on Electronic Media said that the stipulated  ban on the operation  of  ‘Okada’ in these local government areas is indefinite. 

Governor  Wike  has directed security  agencies to enforce the ban.

The governor  regrets any inconveniences the ban will cause residents, businesses and  commercial motorcyclists in these local government areas. 

He, however,  called on all stakeholders  in  the  mentioned  local government  areas  to cooperate  with the state government  and  security  agencies  to improve  the  security  situation in their communities.
