Not less than three persons have been feared killed after a fight broke out between commercial motorcyclists and policemen at Ijora in Apapa, Lagos.
The fight, which started around 9:30am, was said to have led to destruction of vehicles and other properties in the area. The value of the properties destroyed has not been ascertained yet.
Policemen had gone to the port community to enforce the state government’s ban on commercial cycles but met stiff resistance from the operators who had earlier vowed to unleash mayhem in protest against the new order.
At the time of this news report, security has been reinforced and several motorcycles seized.
