Many travellers plying Abeokuta-Papa-Sango-Lagos road on Monday were stranded when some yet-to-be-identified men of the Nigeria Police Force, Ogun State Command, shot dead a truck driver and his motor boy.

The incident reportedly occurred along the Itori area of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

Our correspondent gathered that the policemen in their patrol van met the victim driving against traffic to avoid the bad portion of the road in Ewekoro Local Government, the same offence the cops were also said to be guilty of.

An eyewitness said, “When they saw the truck driver, they told him to turn back. The driver was reluctant and they shot his tyres.

“This led to an altercation and at the end of the day, the policemen shot dead the truck driver and his motor boy.

“That was why the youths of Itori blocked the road to protest the unjust killing of the driver and his colleague.”

The development made some motorists and commuters stranded for hours while commercial activities in the area were brought to halt.

It was gathered that for hours, commuters were held in traffic which started building up around 4pm.

Many motorists resorted to using bushy alternative routes, where they were compelled to pay some money to the area boys in the area for access.

When contacted, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed that there was an incident in Itori.

Oyeyemi, however, said he was yet to be fully briefed about the incident by the Divisional Police Officer in Itori.
