Hundreds of Okada Riders took to the roads staging a protest during the weekend in Kaduna over the killing of one of their members by Kaduna State Traffic And Environmental Law Enforcement Agency (KASTELEA) officials around Alhudahuda College Zaria while chasing the Okada rider from Barau Dikko Hospital Tudun Wada Zaria.

The protesting riders also made their way to the Emir’s palace in Zaria,where they lamented the frequent harassment of their members to the monarch.

The Okada Riders made it known that they were always harassed by officials of KASTELEA all in the name of checking of particulars and arrest.

A witness who spoke to our source stated that the incident occurred when a KASTELEA’s  operational vehicle mistakenly knocked down the okada rider  in an attempt to arrest  him over alleged traffic infraction he committed.

“While he was been chased, he fell down and their vehicle hit him and he died instantly. Another woman who sustained an injury during the accident and admitted at ABUTH Kofar Doka Zaria was said to be inside Keke Napep when the KASTSELEA’s  vehicle hits  them along with the Okadaman,’’the witness added.

Engr. Aliyu Idris Ibrahim Magani Sai Da Gwaji, who is the council’s chair, Zaria Local Government, asked the protesting okada riders to remain calm and promised  that he would investigate the incident.

He promised them that a proper investigation will be carried out and whoever is found guilty will be punished accordingly.
