A popular musician once sang that ‘one day bush meat go catch the hunter’. This is the case of the Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit and motorcycle riders popularly known as Okada riders.
Chaos broke out on the Ikeja Along end of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway on last week after motorcycle riders and personnel of the Task Force unit clashed.
Vehicular movement was grounded, as the motorcyclists set bonfires on the road. The incident was the second fight between the riders and the task force in less than two weeks.
A video circulated on social media indicated that the task force officers were running for safety as the riders went out in mass to attack them.
