As the Nigeria Labour Congress commenced it’s two-day warning strike on Tuesday, there was pandemonium in the Mile 2 area of Lagos state, as unconfirmed reports circulated of a tragic incident.
According to these reports, a yet-to-be-identified individual, believed to be a truck driver, was allegedly killed by men from the state taskforce.
The distressing incident triggered a furious response from local residents, leading to road blockades with makeshift bonfires on the usually bustling streets.
In response to this developing situation, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, addressed the matter through his official twitter handle.
He stated, “That claim cannot be confirmed yet. Information is still sketchy. However, I can confirm that police patrol teams have arrived at the scene. Obstacles are being cleared, and the free flow of traffic is gradually resuming.”
