Soldiers on rampage in Lagos, set BRT buses on fire

Some rampaging soldiers in Lagos State on Friday set some buses of the Lagos State Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system on fire after a soldier was allegedly killed by one of the buses in Palmgrove area.

Eye-witness said the incident happened when the BRT driver changed his lane and accidentally knocked down the soldier on a bike.

The soldier’s death has not been confirmed by any government authority.

As a result of that, some soldiers gathered at the scene along Ikorodu Road, stopping all BRT buses and destroying some of them.

Aside from the buses that were set ablaze, some persons were beaten-up mercilessly by the soldiers who set one of the buses on fire close to a petrol station.
