Operatives of the Lagos Police Command have clashed with commercial motorcyclists, popularly known as okada riders, in the Ogba area of Lagos State.
It was gathered that the riders clashed with the police officers over the alleged shooting of their member by a police officer.
It was learned that the unrest started on Thursday night when a police officer refused to pay for the service rendered to him by an Okada rider.
A source told PUNCH that two people were allegedly killed last night during the fracas.
“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. Like some minutes ago. And all the Okada riders are off their bikes getting ready for a riot,” he said.
