An Okada rider and his 2 male passengers were crushed to death this afternoon at Awoyaya bus-stop along the Lekki-Epe Express way in Lagos as they were being chased by a police van.
While trying to escape from the police who were chasing them to seize their bike for riding on the express, the Okada, which was in high speed, collided with a BRT bus that crushed them to death.
This development is coming at the heel of a similar incident that occurred around Palmgrove area, where a BRT vehicle was said to have crushed a soldier to death.
According to an eye-witness, area boys gathered and burnt the police van. The army had to be brought in to calm the situation.
Another eye-witnesses say the BRT bus was on high speed when it ran into the motor cyclist and his passengers as they were about to cross to the other side of the road, killing all three on the spot.
