A pressure group, Joint Action Movement (JAM), has described as illegal, the recent protest of some commercial cyclist otherwise known as Okada riders against the Lagos State Traffic Law. The group, at rallies at Agege and Mile 12, over the weekend, warned the protesters that they were toying with contempt of court charges with their actions reminding them that “the matter has been adjucated upon by a court of competent jurisdiction.

” Addressing the rallies jointly, the national Coordinator of JAM, Kehinde Olaore and Kola Animasaun, President and General Secretary respectively, wondered, “why an aggrieved set of people, who approached the court for adjudication could thereafter engage in senseless protest after the case has been thrown out!” The group dissociated its members from the protest which was allegedly  masterminded by a group known as Joint Action Forum (JAF), admitting that “We are component part of the group before it decided to engage in activities that are inimical and detrimental to the corporate existence of the country.”
