There was pandemonium in Lagos on Wednesday over the killing of an officer of the Nigeria Police Force allegedly by some commercial motorcycle riders popularly known as Okada riders.
According to Naija News, the incident happened along the Apapa-Oshodi expressway. At least three guns belonging to the police were allegedly hijacked.
The detail of the incident is still sketchy as of reporting time. Daily Trust, however, reported that the body of the killed cop was found around Cele Bus Stop.
A journalist who was around the area told the publication that at least five patrol vehicles filled with fully armed policemen arrived at the scene immediately and were pursuing the okada riders towards Second Rainbow/Mile 2 along the expressway.
