“We didn’t expect to see them because we are not working with our okada. We were inside the house when they broke in and took away our okada with force,” he said.

“They are still around Iyana-Ipaja roundabout. We will not stop burning tires until we retrieve our okada. They beat us when we didn’t do anything to them. We are going to fight back.”

The chaos has spread to Iyana-Ipaja bus stop around Abule-Egba where protesters were tear-gassed by the task force.

The state government had banned okada and tricycle operations along major highways and roads in the state.
