Okada riders on the rampage in Lagos •BRT buses destroyed, passengers stranded, injured

There was confusion on Monday morning in many parts of Lagos State as angry commercial motorcyclists protested  against the confiscation of their motorcycles by  officials of the state government and men of the Nigeria Police.

About five buses in the fleet of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) scheme were destroyed with many passengers of the bus injured during the confusion that followed the attacks on the buses.

Unconfirmed reports have it that the police in the state have arrested many of the protesters but the Police Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State command, Ngozi Braide, denied knowledge of the arrest.
