Police resolve okada riders’ crisis in Ekiti


The Ekiti State Commissioner of Police, Dare Ogundare, has resolved the crisis among okada riders in the state.

The CP met with the warring parties shortly after the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejugbe, met with the leadership of the Okada riders.

Some commercial motorcyclists in Ado-Ekiti had staged a protest over an alleged abuse of power by their leaders.

While addressing the parties after listening to the disagreements between the association led by the State chairman, Comrade Kunle Ashaolu, and the representatives of the protesting members, the commissioner of police charged both parties to give peace a chance and ensure that the current peaceful atmosphere being enjoyed in the state is sustained.

The commissioner of police implored them to cultivate the habit of channeling their complaints appropriately and in accordance with the laid down rules and regulations rather than taking laws in their hands.

In their separate remarks, both parties pledged to maintain peace and order.

Meanwhile, those arrested with dangerous weapons would be charged to court accordingly.
