There is a disturbance at the OPIC Bus Stop along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday, following a clash between policemen and Okada riders.
Eyewitnesses claim that the situation resulted from the shooting of an okada rider by a policeman. Our correspondent observed that there was fire burning on the road, which has worsened the gridlock on that Lagos-bound traffic section of the road.
In a video that has now gone viral, people were seen running helter-skelter for their lives. In the video, a policeman was seen shooting in the air as some okada riders were trying to escape.
Several gunshots were held while commuters had to stay in their various cars for safety.
There has not been any official state from the authorities for the reason for the clash. Although a yet-to-be-identified man at the scene said a policeman has been shot dead.
As of writing this report, the numbers of causalities are yet to be ascertained.
