Abuja Okada Riders Set Houses on Fire Over Colleagues’ Death
Over 100 motorcyclists have attacked Same Global Estate in the Lokogoma area of Abuja to avenge the death of two colleagues.
The Punch reports that the incident occurred after a car allegedly struck the Okda cyclists on Sunday, forcing them to flee inside the estate for protection.
The Okada riders allegedly set fire to two buildings on the estate, according to the PUNCH.
Motorcyclists stormed the estate in an attempt to arrest an unknown motorist.
They noted that the motorist was chased by a mammoth crowd of motorcyclists after he overran two motorcyclists.
The Estate Manager, Mr Adebisi Adelowo, who spoke to The PUNCH, said, “Over 100 Hausa bike riders attacked our estate some hours ago. They tried to burn down the estate by putting fire to two buildings.
“They pulled down our gate and started stoning people’s houses. We couldn’t stop them until the police and the army intervened.
“We later learnt that they attacked our estate because two of their colleagues were knocked to death by a motorist who ran to our estate for safety as he was been chased with big stones and other dangerous weapons.
“The motorist who is not even a resident of our estate ran into the estate because he noticed a police post in front of the estate.”
