NewsReport gathered that the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Abiodun Alabi, says the command is looking for foreigners who operate as commercial motorcyclists in the state.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday, Alabi revealed this.
He claimed that the command was aware of some foreigners riding motorcycles in the state and that they were on the lookout for them.
We’re aware that many of the commercial motorcyclists operating in Lagos are foreigners, so we’ve started routing checks to profile them.
“Once we’ve finished profiling them, we’ll turn them over to the Nigeria Immigration Service for additional investigation and possibly repatriation,” he said.
On the inflow of motorcycles into Lagos State, Alabi said the command was activating the old strategy by deploying officers to all border towns to check every means of importing motorcycles into the state.
“We are going to carry out the old strategy by ensuring that no motorcycle comes into the state.” “We will seize any motorcycle found in any vehicle coming into Lagos,” he said.
The police commissioner had on Thursday advised that people should stop giving out motorcycles as a means of empowerment but adopt other meaningful ventures.
Alabi, on Thursday, was reacting to the total ban of commercial motorcycles in some local government areas in Lagos.
“The fact remains that banning okada in Lagos while some people are bringing them in through empowerment is giving the police a problem in implementing the already existing laws,” he said. (NAN)
