Police brutalise Okada rider, seize motorcycle in Lagos



A yet-to-be-identified motorcyclist has been brutalised by policemen attempting to seize his motorcycle around Ogundele Street, Oja Oba in the Abule Egba area of Lagos State.

The PUNCH gathered that the motorcyclist was going to a destination in the area when the policemen accosted him.

The reason why the policemen accosted the motorcyclist could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report but during the attempt to seize the motorcycle, the motorcyclist resisted.

Angered by the action of the motorcyclist, the three policemen were seen in a 45 seconds video clip recorded by an eyewitness descending on the motorcyclist in a bid to seize the motorcyclist.

In the video clip posted on Wednesday by a Twitter handle, @AGINAS, one of the policemen was seen using a stick to beat the motorcyclist who was bent on recovering his motorcyclist from them.

“Police Brutality: Unarmed innocent young man seen brutalised by the police and his motorcycle seized from him by a group of (police) in Oja Oba, Ogundele Street close to Abule Egba under the bridge in Lagos,” a message attached to the video read.

Blood was seen gushing out of the head of the motorcyclist as the three policemen fled the scene of the incident with the motorcycle.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, had yet to respond to calls and a text message sent to his phone number as of the time this report was filed.
