Over 100 motorcyclists (okada riders) on Sunday attacked Same Global Estate and set fire on two buildings in the Lokogoma area of Abuja to avenge the death of two colleagues.
According to residents of the estate, the incident happened after an unknown motorist reportedly hit two motorcyclists (okada riders) on Sunday and ran into the estate for safety. They noted that the motorist was chased by an enormous crowd of motorcyclists.
The Estate Manager, Adebisi Adelowo, who narrated the attack to The PUNCH, said, “Over 100 Hausa bike riders attacked our estate some hours ago. They tried to burn down the estate by putting fire on two buildings.
“They pulled down our gate and started stoning people’s houses. We couldn’t stop them until the police and the army intervened.
“We later learnt that they attacked our estate because two of their colleagues were knocked to death by a motorist who ran to our estate for safety as he was been chased with big stones and other dangerous weapons.
“The motorist who is not even a resident of our estate ran into the estate because he noticed a police post in front of the estate.”
Security operatives however arrived at the estate to further prevent damage to properties.
