Eye-witness said the incident happened when the BRT driver changed his lane and accidentally knocked down the soldier on a bike. As a result of that, some soldiers gathered at the scene along Ikorodu Road, stopping all BRT buses and destroying some of them. Aside from the buses that were set ablaze, some persons were beaten-up mercilessly by the soldiers who set one of the buses on fire close to a petrol station.
However, the soldier’s death has not been confirmed by any government authority.
More details soon.
