Lagos-based motorcycle-hailing startup, Gokada has sacked most of its workforce. Launched 2 years ago, the company was founded by Fahim Saleh to end Lagos’ traffic issues. Since its launch, Gokada has raised a total of $5.6 million from two rounds and claims to have completed over one million rides.

This new development happened as a result of the recent ban placed on okadas in Lagos State. On the 27th of January, the Lagos state government announced the ban of all kinds of motorcycles and tricycles in major parts of the state, including motorcycle-hailing startups like Gokada and MAX Okada.

CEO, Fahim Saleh recently shared a video to address the ban.
