Tricycle drivers in Meiran, a Lagos outskirt, have allegedly killed a policeman who shot one of their members over N100 bribe.

Hoodlums also stormed Merian Police Station at Ile-Iwe bus stop, over the death of the tricycle rider.

It was learnt that the tricycle rider refused to give the police officer N100 bribe, which led to the shooting at Command bus stop, close to Command Secondary Schools owned by the Nigerian Army.

The other drivers, enraged by the killing allegedly captured the policeman and killed him.

Policemen from Meiran Divisional Police Station located in the area mobilized and have put the entire area under siege, shooting sporadically to disperse the hoodlums.

It was also gathered that the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) are currently on ground to maintain law and order.

Commuters and residents have been left stranded as hoodlums blocked the road.

Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu confirmed the development, even as he stated that the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has dispatched adequate patrol teams to maintain law and order, saying normalcy has been restored to the area.
