Panic as Oniru uncovers ploy by Okada
riders to attack Lekki – Oniru of Iru Oba Abdulwasiu Lawal has uncovered a ploy by okada riders to attack in Lekki area of Lagos, following the recent ban on Okada operations by Lagos State Government in Lekki and other areas in the state.
Recall that the ban was imposed by the Lagos state government after a sound engineer David Imoh was lynched by Okada riders over an N100 balance.
Now urging Lekki residents to be vigilant and security conscious, the Oniru in a circular issued earlier today, announced the uncovered ploy.
“Intelligence report reaching us is that
following the raid on Okada riders and seizure of their bikes in Lekki Phase 1, the riders believed the action was instigated by Lekki residents who are determined to take away their source of livelihood,”
“To this end, there are plans to invade inner streets to cause havoc anytime from now in Lekki.
“In its proactive measures, His Royal Majesty — the Oniru of Iru land, Oba Abdulwasiu Omogtrolahan Lawal (Abisogun II) – has advised that all access points within the Estate be secured and all security guards should be on red alert.
“This is an emergency measure, not panic. We advise all residents to be extremely cautious and please collaborate with security guards at the gates.” the circular informed
