In the wake of the Okada ban in Lagos, Gokada one of the on-demand motorcycle ride-hailing platforms affected by the ban has unofficially launched a food delivery service tagged ‘Chops’.

Gokada which recently sacked almost 70% of its workers recently announced that it would pivot into deliveries and logistics as a way to cushion the impact of the Okada ban.

Now it appears Gokada has introduced a food delivery service called Chop in the aftermath of the ban.

Chop according to reports is a platform that works with online food marketplaces to deliver food to their customers. One of Gokada’s clients according to reports is Jumia‘s food marketplace, Jumia Food.

The Lagos State Government had proscribed the operations of motorcycles in six Local Government Areas (LGAs), nine Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) and 10 major highways across the State with effect from February 1.

LASG directed security operatives to embark on total enforcement of the State’s Transport Sector Reform Law of 2018 to immediately address the chaos and disorderliness created by illegal operations of Okada and tricycle riders in restricted areas
