Fani-Kayode, reacting joined the likes of Shina Peller, a member of House of Representative in support of the ban.

The former minister stating his position, said Niger and Chad citizens have so far infiltrated Lagos state in disguise as Okada riders.

He urged Lagosians lamenting to consider the possibility of riot from Okada riders he described as violent mercenaries in Lagos.

Fani-Kayode on his Twitter page wrote: ” Lagos had been encircled, infiltrated and occupied by violent mercenaries from Niger and Chad all claiming to be Okada riders.

”If they rose up against the indigenous population in the name of jihad or ethnic cleansing it would have been hell. Sanwo-Olu did well by banning them.”
