“Kwara, a  peaceful state in Nigeria, has many respectable and peace-loving Okada operators who have been major stakeholders in the transport sector but the recent pronouncement of bans in some states has led to infiltration of our Okada operators by aliens who may cause security breaches in the state,” the chairman said.

Iliasu noted that many suspected criminals had been found to often use motorcycles to carry out their dastardly acts.

He added that the government always worked with the police command in the state and other security agencies to protect the lives and property of people of the state.
