Fair Or Unfair? - Nigerian Authorities Crush More Than 2,000 Confiscated Motorcycle Taxis

Nigerian authorities have recently crushed over 2,000 confiscated motorcycle taxis popularly known as "Okada" in the biggest city, Lagos. The act was triggered by a murder case that occurred somewhere last month. Nigeria is one of the African countries which has a ban on the use of motorcycle taxis.

Ever since the ban was implemented, it has had a mixed reaction from residents. Some people are saying the riders drive dangerously, while others claim motorcycle taxis provide vital work for the youth.

One 38-year-old sound engineer by the name of David was murdered in the upmarket Lekki neighborhood after a disagreement over transport fares. The awful incident sparked a lot of conversation on the internet which forced the authorities to act.

Nigerian authorities crushed motorcycle taxis that have been seized to serve as a deterrent to people who want to still use the banned motorcycle taxis.
