‘Okada’ Riders Accuse Customs Officials Of Extortion In Apapa

LAGOS JULY 1ST (NEWSRANGERS)-Commercial motorcycle riders popularly known as okada have accused Customs officials manning the gate of Apapa Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) of extortion.

The okada riders lamented the incessant collection of “tolls” by the Apapa Area Command Customs operatives whenever they drop passengers in front of its gate.

One of the okada riders, who identified himself as Ali, said his motorcycle was seized by the Customs officials because he refused to bribe them after dropping off a passenger in front of the gate of the command.

“As you can see, while some who might have given bribes to the officers in charge for them to do as they like, my bike was seized and they requested #15,000 to bail which I don’t have. I can only account for #500 here with me,” he said.
