A mob of riders had last week attacked and killed a sound engineer with Legacy360 Band, Sunday David Imoh, at the Admiralty Way, Lekki over an argument on N100 fare.

The mob also attacked and injured two other members of the band including a saxophonist, Francis Olatunji, and the keyboardist, Philip Balogun.

Many Lagosians have condemned the action of the okada riders and called on the government to curb their excesses.

This is not the first time Lagos State is announcing a ban on the operation of okada in some parts of the State but implementation has not been very effective.
