The commercial motorcyclist who allegedly stripped himself naked on Acme Road, Ogba, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, on Monday, has been sent to prison over his inability to meet bail conditions.
The okada rider, Sunday Udoh, 38, stripped naked on Monday when the police arrested him for riding his motorcycle on a prohibited road.
He was taken to the headquarters of the Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit and arraigned in court on Tuesday.
He was arraigned for stripping himself naked to evade arrest and constitute nuisance to the public. The Special Court sitting at the task force office granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 and a surety after he had pleaded not guilty.
Due to his inability to meet the bail terms, he was remanded in custody while the case was adjourned till 13 November, 2012. Earlier, Udoh had told P.M.NEWS that he could not tell whether he stripped himself.
“I don’t know when I did it. I was begging them and I don’t know whether my clothes were on me or not,” he said.
Task force Chairman, Bayo Sulaiman said the rider stripped himself to attract public sympathy just like the one that happened last week. “He was about to be arrested when he created a big scene by stripping himself naked. They have devised a means to escape when they are arrested. We succeeded in persuading him to put on his clothes before we arrested him.
“Stripping himself is a violation of the traffic law. His action smacks of bad conduct and can lead to an attack on policemen by other riders,” he said.
