The situation was the same at Tracas bus stop,Oguta road,Ekene Junction, Old and New Market roads.
Mrs Chika Nwibe, Ndubuisi Nweze and Cynthia Madu, said this will stop criminal activities linked to commercial motorcyclists but lamented the economic hardship it will create to families who genuinely rely on commercial motorcycle for their livelihood as well as the long distance people will trek in getting to places that are not motorable.
Staff reporter who monitored the level of compliance, reports that police van was seen on patrol while travelers who disembarked at the Upper Iweka contended with their loads.
More commercial tricycle operators were also seen enjoying business boom.
One of them who reacted to the development said its a welcome development but still appealed to the state government to provide more empowerment to the banned okada riders.
