Some soldiers are causing chaos in the Palmgroove area of
Lagos at the moment. An eye-witness said trouble started when a BRT
bus hit a soldier on
a bike. We’re yet to know if the soldier died (though there
are indications that he may have been crushed to death) but other
soldiers immediately arrived the scene and started stopping all BRT
buses on the express beating drivers and sending passengers out.
Beating even passers-by who move too close to them or take
pictures. According the eye-witness who sent in the photos, two
civilians were allegedly beaten up and a guy who was taking
pictures was beaten and his phone smashed on the express road. Then
the soldiers allegedly started vandalizing the buses! According to
the source, some soldiers left the express and took big sticks from
women cooking by the road to break the glasses of the bus. Then one
of them took stones and allegedly threw it into the crowd twice.
Now the whole express is blocked. See photos from the chaos after
