A Lagos-based lawyer, Tope Akinyode, has sued the Lagos State Government over the ban on commercial tricycles (keke) and motorcycles (okada) in some parts of the state.
PREMIUM TIMES reported how the Lagos government announced a ban on these vehicles in major residential and business hubs, including Ikeja, the state capital.
It said the ban became necessary for security and safety. The ban has, however, generated conflict since February 1.
A schoolgirl was hit by a stray bullet at Iyana Ipaja, Lagos, on Wednesday during a violent clash between a mob, protesting the ban and security officials.
The girl, who is yet to be identified, was promptly taken to Peak Health Hospital where she was stabilised before she was referred to the General Hospital, Orile Agege for treatment.
