Tension erupted on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday as an Okada rider was reportedly hit by a policeman’s bullet.
The detail of the situation is still sketchy. However, an official of the Federal Road Safety Corps, who confided in our correspondent on condition of anonymity, said the bike man was dragging a rifle with the policeman, who in turn, accidentally fired a shot.
He noted that the bike man had been taken to an unknown hospital for treatment.
However, a witness also claimed that a biker had entered the freshly built lane of the road and collided with the police officers protecting the contractors as a result.
It was also gathered that normalcy had been restored, with commuters now moving freely.
When contacted, the Ogun State Police Command was yet to give detail of the incident.
