#OccupyAlausa: Nigerians living with disabilities ‘occupy’ Lagos government house to demand reversal of ‘keke’ ban Updated for 2021


Updated: March 1, 2021

Hundreds of Nigerians living with physical disabilities stormed the Lagos State Government House on Tuesday to demand a reversal of motorcycles and tricycles ban in the state. Tuesday’s protest followed an earlier protest staged on February 7, 2020.

The persons living with physical disabilities returned to the Lagos State Governor’s office, vowing to remain there until the Governor grants them audience to discuss their concerns regarding the recent keke ban, which has decimated their livelihoods and mobility for the last 25 days.

This #OccupyAlausa movement aligns with the efforts of a broader coalition of civil society and concerned citizens who have championed a #RegulateNotBan approach and called for the Governor to develop an alternative policy by the end of February 2020.  

As we write, hundreds of PLWDs pray and settle in to spend the night outside the Lagos State Governor’s office. Please show your solidarity and support by joining them in the coming days and helping to amplify their voices in every way possible.
