In an effort to intensify safety on highways and inner roads, the Lagos State Government mapped out major roads where tricycles (Keke NAPEP) and motorcycles (Okada) are restricted from plying in the state.

Due to the ban on bikes and keke,  Danfo drivers upgraded the cost of transportation around Lagos for no reason. This proves how greedy most Nigerians can be, and how some people love taking advantage of peoples misfortunes.

CotenantNIG, penned down the cost of transportation around major routes in Lagos state. We thought it wise to share this with our readers too.
