There is unrest in Ogba, Lagos over the alleged shooting of Hausa commercial motorcyclist, popularly known as Okada, by a police officer.
A source told News Rain Nigeria that the unrest started yesterday when a police officer refused to pay for the service rendered to him by an Okada rider.
The anonymous source also disclosed 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.
Presently, normalcy has been restored and commercial activities have resumed in the area, but the motorcycle riders are no longer on the roads.
