Motorcyclist strikes policeman dead in Lagos


A motorcyclist, Bakare Lukman, has been arrested for striking a police officer dead with an iron rod in the Meiran area of Lagos State.

The deceased, Joseph Ebosele, was part of a police patrol team that confiscated Lukman’s motorcycle for riding at about 12 midnight, violating the traffic law which prohibits the movement of commercial motorcycles after 10pm.

Lukman who confessed to killing the policeman said he laid ambush for the patrol team after his motorcycle was confiscated. He said he struck the officer riding his bike with an iron and fled with the bike before he was arrested.
