Its spokesman, Mr Benjamin Hundeyin, announced this on Saturday in his Twitter handle, monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

“Under the new total ban of motorcycles in the six local government areas of Lagos State, passengers and riders alike will be arrested and prosecuted.

“The passenger is an accomplice. Ignorance will not be an excuse,” he declared.
