A Superintendent of Police (SP) has been allegedly shot dead while two other cops injured after commercial motorcyclists went wild in Lagos.
The incident occurred between 5pm and 6pm on Thursday at Ajao Estate in Isolo while the policemen were trying to impound motorcyclists.
It was gathered that the cops had succeeded in seizing some of the bikes for allegedly flouting the State Traffic Law when the aggrieved motorcyclists mobilised and attacked them.
Sources disclosed that motorcyclists operating inside and around Ajao Estate were mostly northerners from Nassarawa State.
They were said to have disarmed the SP and used his service firearm to kill him along Asa Afariogun Road by the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
A resident, who pleaded anonymity, disclosed that the riotous bikers were said to have extended their battle with the police towards the station where they allegedly shot two more officers.
The incident, according to the source, caused commotion in the area as people scampered for safety.
At the time of this report, it was not clear the number of casualties recorded.
Contacted, Police spokesman, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu promised to make findings and revert but was yet to do so at the time of this report.
