Okada ban: People living with disabilities stage protest

Some residents of Lagos State who are physically challenged today occupied a section of Mobolaji Johnson Avenue, Alausa in Ikeja, the state capital in protest.

The protesters who are majorly commercial tricycle riders are protesting over the restriction of motorcycles and tricycles in some local government areas and expressways in the state by the Lagos State government.

Carrying various placards, the protesters lamented that the restriction will force them to return to the street as beggars and destitute.

Some of them lamented that driving motorcycle and tricycle has been their source of livelihood since they abandoned begging.
