An angry mob made up of street hawkers vandalized over 20 buses at Maryland, Lagos State after a BRT fatally knocked down one of their own today Wednesday June 29th 2016.
According to eyewitness:
“A street hawker was killed after being knocked down by a BRT bus and this led to more than 20 BRT buses being damaged by other hawkers and hoodlums. Lagos ambulance was swift to arrive the scene but no sign of any security agency right now. I got a small video but it isn’t too clear because I had to run for my own life.
“Men of the Nigerian army have been deployed to handle the situation.
All hoodlums fled at the sight of these gallant men. I’ve never seen such respect for uniform. People were even standing with the policemen but I can’t see a soul anywhere near 100-200ft of these soldiers.”
