NAN gathered that the burnt patrol vehicle was, however, attached to Ipakodo Police Station, another suburb of Lagos.

Sources said trouble started on Tuesday night when a patrol team from Ibeshe Division allegedly engaged one of the motorcyclists in a hot chase for failure to pay an undisclosed amount.

A source told NAN: “Following the refusal of the deceased to pay the money, he was said to have been chased towards Ibeshe road until he fell into a gutter with his motorcycle.

“The police team immediately ran away with their vehicle, abandoning the fatally injured victim inside the ditch
“Other motorcyclists immediately drove to the scene and moved the victim to a nearby hospital where he died.

“Following his death, his colleagues mobilised themselves on Wednesday and attacked a police team they sighted before setting the patrol van ablaze.

“The policemen ran for safety in different direction back to the station located on NPA road, Ebute Ipakodo.”

SP Chike Oti, the police spokesman in Lagos, confirmed the incident, saying that 63 motorcyclists allegedly involved in the burning of their vehicle have been arrested.
