Lagos Highways Flooded With Okada, Articulated Vehicles

Plying the Oshodi-Apapa expressway for the first time might leave one confused as to whether it is the major expressway leading to the country’s major seaports or an inner street, as most major bus stops have been taken over by commercial motorcyclists, otherwise known as okada, while the service lanes have been turned into the car park by trailers, tankers, containers, and other articulated vehicles.

Every day, road users and pedestrians are forced to contend with hundreds of okadas taking up one part of the road hustling for passengers, and when in motion, they constitute a danger by violating the one-way rule on the express, ferrying passengers at top speed.
