The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Idowu Owohunwa, has ordered a probe into the death of a driver killed during a clash in the Mile 2 area of Lagos State on Tuesday morning.
Eyewitness accounts indicated that the dispute between truck drivers and seeming police officers quickly escalated into chaos with irate youths barricading the area and starting bonfires along the expressway.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, explained that Joint Task Force operatives that allegedly carried out the attack leading to the death and the hospitalisation of another victim were not from the state command.
According to Hundeyin, the Commissioner of Police visited the scene of the incident and normalcy has returned to the area while an investigation has been launched to ascertain those behind the attack.
He however added that immediate measures had been put in place with the deployment of policemen to maintain law and order throughout the area.
