One Dead, Others Injured As Policemen & Okada Riders Clash In Ibadan Over Bribe (Photos)

 
A clash between policemen and commercial motorcyclists in the Yemetu area of Ibadan, Oyo State, on Tuesday has left one dead with several others seriously injured. According to reports, trouble started after a commercial motorcyclist was reportedly shot by a policeman after he refused to part with money demanded from him by the cop.

It was reported that after the commercial motorcyclist was shot dead, his colleagues decided to avenge his death. The commercial motorcyclists were joined by hoodlums in the area, who also attempted to burn a police station in Yemetu. 

The police confirmed that seven persons, believed to have been involved in the crisis that rocked areas like Yemetu, Beere, Dandaru, Oje and other parts of the city, have been arrested. 
 
An eyewitness said the okada riders, who felt cheated by the policeman, stormed the Yemetu Police Station where they believed the policemen came from with dangerous weapons.
