Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has placed a ban on the activities of motorcyclists plying Ofosu-Ajebamidele route along Benin-Ore Expressway

Akelicious gathered that the move is part of the strategy adopted by the state government to curb criminal activities in the area.

The Benin-Ore Expressway is notorious for criminal activities, including banditry, kidnapping and robbery. Some of these activities have, in the past, linked to Fulani Herdsmen in the state.


A statement sent to Akelicious by the State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo said government took the step due to the activities of some unscrupulous elements who hide under the guise of engaging in motorcycle business, to perpetrate crime on the route.
