How N200 can allow a human being to kill another. A commercial motorcyclist (popularly called okada rider), Azeez Ahmed, has been killed in Ifo, in the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, over ticket collection.
It was gathered that the incident, which occurred on Sunday, was caused by an argument over the collection of okada riders’ ticket. The argument led to a fight between him and an official of the Articulate Motorcyclists Owners and Riders Association of Nigeria, identified as Kola Adegbite.
Our correspondent gathered that Ahmed was accosted by Adegbite at the Bank bus stop and told to purchase the day’s ticket, which led to the argument. It was learnt that the okada rider was surrounded by Adegbite and other AMORAN officials who were on duty. They pounced on Ahmed.
The barrage of blows forced Ahmed to the ground. It was said that while others left the rider alone, Adegbite allegedly hit him with a charm. Our correspondent gathered that sensing that the charm had taken hold of Ahmed, Adegbite attempted to run away.
He was, however, forced to take the dying rider to the General Hospital, Ifo, where Ahmed eventually died. Adegbite was consequently detained at the Ifo Police Division.
