Two banks in Apapa reportedly set ablaze after policeman shot trailer driver dead

A group of people have reportedly set two banks in Apapa, Lagos on fire after a policeman attached to Diamond Bank on Burma Road allegedly shot dead some trailer drivers.

According to reports, the mob also set a Sterling Bank branch on Wharf Road ablaze.

It was gathered that the trailer drivers had indiscriminately parked in front of the bank.

Angered by the killing and the bank’s refusal to hand over the policeman to them, the driver’s colleagues moved to set the bank ablaze, destroying properties and other valuables.

Policemen from Rapid Response Squad, anti-riot squad and Area B command, as well as operatives from the Nigerian Navy Ship BEECEOFT have been deployed to the scene of the incident.
