The Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a video trending on the social media in respect of an Okada Rider said to have been chased to his death by a Police Officer. The allegation is false and a complete misrepresentation of the facts. The fact is that on  8th, May 2019 at about 6.05am the Police at Ago Okota Police Station heard a loud sound few meters away from the station and rushed out to ascertain what was going on. They found a motorcyclist laying down in the pool of his own blood with his motorcycle on the ground. The victim was taken to the hospital but eventually died. On inquiries from eye witnesses around the scene, it was gathered that the motorcyclist was involved in a fatal accident with a vehicle along Ago Palace way. An eye witness known as  Mr Adedayo Benson stated that this morning he was standing in front of century hotel and saw the okada man, who was riding on a high speed ran into a road bump/speed breaker and suddenly applied his break but was hit by a Camry car who was driving  behind. That the driver of the Camry ran before the arrival of the Police. Investigation into the accident is ongoing to track and apprehend the driver of the Camry vehicle with a view of bringing him to justice.
