A new means of transportation have been introduced in Lagos State following the recent ban on commercial motorcycles, popularly called Okada, and tricycles, known as Keke Napep in some areas in the state.
The Lagos State government stated that the ban was due to the rising crime rates and accidents associated with motorcycles and tricycles.
A new photo circulating on the internet shows different colours of mini bus roaming the street of Lagos and Lagosians are wondering if it is a replacement for okada and keke.
At the time of filing this report, we don’t know if the replacement is from the state government or from a private sector.

Tbh I actually prefer this to keke. Looks more modern, more safe and more civilized. But they should give it to the people who used to ride keke. Which they banned. pic.twitter.com/FFry69PEGP

There is no #UltmateLoveNg anywhere.. Lagos State govt played lagosians. They banned Okada & keke so they can bring in mini cars and dominate the transportation business in Lagos and cash out.
