A Superintendent of Police (SP) has been shot dead and two other officers allegedly injured after commercial motorcyclists attacked them in the Ajao Estate area in Lagos state.
It was gathered that the unfortunate incident happened on Thursday, September 23 when the policemen trying to impound motorcyclists were attacked. The officers had succeeded in seizing some of the bikes for allegedly flouting the State Traffic Law when the aggrieved motorcyclists mobilized and attacked them.
According to eyewitnesses, the motorcyclists who are majorly from the Northern of the country, disarmed the SP and used his service firearm to kill him along Asa Afariogun Road by the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
The riotous bikers were said to have extended their battle with the police towards the station where they allegedly shot two more officers and burnt a patrol van.
