One killed as police, motorcyclists clash in Lagos

One person was on Thursday feared killed and several others injured during a violent clash that erupted between commercial motorcyclists and policemen.

The incident occurred at Ogolonto in Ikorodu, a Lagos district, at about 9am, after the policemen allegedly impounded about 500 motorcycles.

‎Trouble started after the policemen allegedly raided various parks, impounded motorcycles and arresting their owners.

A source who hinted The Nation said that the angry motorcyclist who decided to take laws into their hands, vandalised government properties, including Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) and LAGBUS vehicles‎.

According to another eyewitness who gave him name as Fadeel Akinlolu, the incident caused heavy gridlock on the road that lasted for over an hour.

He said: “I saw more than five people injured and on the ground. I really cannot say if anyone died because I was inside a bus. The problem started after policemen arrested about 500 okadas‎.

“It got the motorcyclist angry and they started attacking government properties, which led to a fight between them, the policemen‎ and state government officials.

“It took over one hour for calm to return and the gridlock cleared.”

‎However, the state Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni denied there was a fight between his men and motorcyclist.

He ‎also stated that no one was killed, neither was anyone injured.

Owoseni said: “There was no riot at Ikorodu. There was no fight between police and motorcyclists. If police arrested motorcycles, they are doing their jobs. No one was killed nor injured.

“We heard there‎ was an issue there but the Area Commander and the DPO were with me at Ikotun. So, I have released them so that they can go and investigate.

“They are yet to give me feedback, I will get across to my PRO to issue a release once they get back to me.‎”
