Just In: Chaos in Ogba area of Lagos as Police, Okada riders clash

There’s palpable tension in the Ogba area of Lagos State following a violent clash between commercial motorcyclists, better known as Okada riders, and the police.

Sources say trouble started after the alleged shooting of an Okada rider by a police officer who had refused to pay for the service rendered to him by the rider.

“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,” a source said on condition of anonymity.

Concerned Nigerians have taken to social media to warn residents to avoid the streets and public places over reports of multiple gunshots as police try to rein in the rioters.
