This was contained in a statement with REF NO CZ: 5650/LS/PPRO/VOL.3/90 issued and E-singed by CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi (mnipr) Police Public Relations Officer Lagos State Command Ikeja-Lagos dated 6th April 2021.

The full part of the statement reads in part.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered for immediate deployment of additional police personnel to the area to maintain law and order as he also directed the Area Commander,

Area E Festac, to personally be on the ground to monitor the situation and invite the leaders of the affected Okada riders unit for an urgent meeting.

The Command wishes to debunk the rumor that the disagreement, not violence as being peddled in the social media, was between some ethnic groups.

Without mincing words, the incident has no ethic coloration whatsoever but a mere conflict between transport unions and their okada units on ticketing and increment in tariff.
