New Traffic Law: okada riders sue Lagos State Government

Some commercial motorcyclists popularly called okada riders have asked a Lagos High Court in Ikeja to void a section of the new Lagos State TrafficLaw prohibiting their operations on major highways.
The plaintiff, through their counsel, Mr. Bamidele Aturu, filed the suit on Monday under the aegis of Incorporated Trustees of All Nigerians Autobike Commercial Owners and Workers Association.
Aturu, in the suit, urged the court to declare that the Lagos State Government lacks the power to regulate traffic on the said major highways because they are federal.

This is the beauty of democracy - lawyers will continue to make money no matter how ridiculous their clients may sound. Lolz.
