All commercial cyclists and tricycle riders on major roads in Lagos are officially banned from today. The Lagos State government had given them 21 days to comply, saying it was reinstituting a ban that has been largely ignored for the last few years.
Out of 9,100 roads in Lagos, 8,740 are now out of bounds for the taxis, which are a popular way of getting through the city’s traffic jams.
Officials say the motorbike taxis are a menace on motorways, causing accidents, and are often used in armed robberies.
