Okada, Keke riders attack BRT in Lagos

Some riders of Okada and Keke reportedly attacked a Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) bus on Lagos-Abeokuta expressway in reaction to their ban by Lagos State Government.

Angry riders on Monday morning, February 3, along the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway were seen picking stones and pelting the BRT bus around Ile-Zik end of the expressway.

It was learnt that the attack caused panic among the passengers who pleaded with the driver of the BRT bus to find a way to move or open the door for them to alight.

The incident soon degenerated into full rioting as the angry Okada riders extended their attack to random passers-by.

An officer of the Nigerian Air Force alighted from one of the vehicles coming from the Agege axis to Ile Zik and tried arresting one of the Okada riders but he was quickly outnumbered and the riders joined hands to attack him.

It took the intervention of another soldier on mufti and camouflage cap to stop the looming outrage
