Commercial motorcyclists popularly called Okada riders, Thursday, went on rampage at Ajao Estate on Airport Road in Lagos, killing a policeman and injuring others .

The okada riders were also alleged to have vandalised a police van during the fracas which occurred on Thursday  evening.

It was gathered that policemen from the Lagos Police Command had gone to the area to carry out enforcement restricting okada riders from plying the prohibited roads but were prevented from carrying out their lawful duty.

An eyewitness told our correspondent that the okada riders mobilised other members from other zones so as to overpower the police.

The okada riders reportedly disarmed a Superintendent of Police, kazeem Abonde and shot him dead with his gun.

The police officer was shot in the head and he died immediately.

Reacting,the Lagos State police public relation officer adekunle Ajisebutu confirmed the story and that investigations had begun on the case.
