SNAPSHOT: ‘Okadas’ make the long journey home

by Isi Esene

Commercial motorcycle operators popularly known as ‘okada’, have started looking elsewhere to earn a means of livelihood after feeling the effect of the new Lagos traffic law restricting them from plying many highways.

Here, they are seen loading their motorcycles in trucks for the long journey back home.

“We’ll go back to our villages if that’s what Fashola wants,” they seem to be saying.
