The Lagos State Police Command has crushed 482 motorcycles, popularly known as Okadas, impounded at different spots across the State.
The okadas were crushed on Saturday at the Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja.
Speaking at the site where 482 of the impounded motorbikes were crushed, the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, disclosed that the crushing exercise had been on since the enforcement started.
He said the exercise was carried out publicly to convince members of the public, especially the doubting Thomas that the impounded motorcycles were actually being crushed contrary to insinuations by mischief makers that the motorbikes were being sold and recycled.
Odumosu, therefore, warned erring motorcycle operators plying restricted areas and those violating other traffic laws or using motorcycles for criminal activities in the state to have a change of mind or face the legal consequences.
The police boss assured that the crushing exercise would be a continuous one to discourage people from trampling upon the law, and reiterated determination of the Police Command to enforce the law.
