The Lagos State Task Force on Environment and Special Offences has begun to release  impounded motorcycles seized from riders that flaunted the laws and order of the state  government.

Their release, it was learnt, was in response to the request made by Mr. Tunji Pekins,  Chairman, Motorcycle Operators Association of Lagos State (MOALS), who had appealed to  the state government to intervene for the release of its members’ motorcycles seized by  men of the Task Force.

The chairman had made the appeal during a forum between the state government and  commercial motorcyclists in the state, held recently in Ikeja.

During the forum, Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola, had promised to look into the  association’s request and that motorcycles that have not been confiscated by the court  would be released.
