Pandemonium broke out around Santos Avenue, Abule Egba, Lagos State, on Tuesday when police officers enforcing a ban on motorcycles in the state clashed with riders.

The Lagos State Police Command, in a post on its official X handle, explained that the officers were attacked by the motorcyclists, popularly known as Okada riders, in a bid to stop them from enforcing the ban.

According to the post, the officers justifiably used teargas to disperse the crowd and preserve their lives.

The post said: ” A passenger in a tricycle, witnessing the use of teargas ahead, panicked and jumped out of the tricycle.

“Sadly, an approaching Leyland tipper, with registration number AAB 376 CB, being driven recklessly, ran over her.

“The driver of the tipper abandoned the scene while the vehicle had been recovered. Contact has also been established with the family of the deceased. Meanwhile, full investigation into the incident has commenced.”
