Policemen and okada riders have clashed in Ogba, Lagos state after an officer allegedly shot a commercial motorcyclist.
PUNCH Metro reports the unrest started on Thursday, when a police officer refused to pay an okada rider for his service.
It is believed that two people were allegedly killed last night.
“It’s a bike man vs policemen fight. An Okada rider rendered a service to a policeman yesterday, then asked for money after dropping him off. He was shot by the policeman who refused to pay him.
“There was a sporadic shooting this morning, some minutes ago. All the Okada riders are off their bikes getting ready for a riot,” the source said.
As of the time of filing this report, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, was yet to respond to calls and messages from PUNCH Metro.
