Tension in Ibadan as Prison Officials and Commercial Motorcycle Riders Clash (Video)


    Tension in Ibadan, Oyo State as Agodi Prison officials and commercial motorcycle riders on Tuesday morning clash.

    The unrest started after a prison vehicle reportedly knocked down a commercial motorcycle rider.

    This was made known by sources and witnesses on the ground, adding that the rider died shortly after the hit.

    However, the failure of prison officials to handle the situation properly was said to have angered the Okada riders, who soon mobilized their colleagues to stage a demonstration in front of the correctional facility.

    In the video, commercial motorcycle riders in large numbers could be seen moving around the gate of the prison while pedestrians ran for safety.
