A riot broke out this morning in Lekki Phase 1
following thugs/ motorcycle riders clash.
The cause of the riot has not been fully
established but according to some residents,
the chairman of the Eti-Osa local government
area allegedly engaged the services of touts to
confiscate any motorcycle seen within the area.
The touts allegedly beat up one of the Okada
men after he refused to let them seize his
motorcycle and this led to a serious fight
between some of the Okada men, bus drivers
and the thugs.
The police was immediately called in to stop
the riot from escalating. The gate leading to
the estate was shut immediately.
