“We achieved this result so as to send a clear message to these intractable okada riders.

“The Agency came fully prepared for the operation, leaving all seven trucks filled with confiscated okada.

“It is evident to these okada riders that there is no place for them in a mega city like Lagos, that is the reason we have continued hitting them back to back till they flee or turn over a new leaf,” he said.
