A businessman, Usman Yamah, has been killed by a group of motorcyclists in the Elepe area in the Ikorodu North Local Government Area of Lagos State.
The motorcyclists had acted in reprisal and allegedly killed Yamah for using his vehicle to hit a partially sighted man around the Ikorodu Garage.
After hitting the partially sighted man, it was learnt that the motorcyclists, out of annoyance, became violent towards Yamah, who reportedly zoomed off from the scene of the incident for fear of his life.
Angered by Yamah’s decision, the motorcyclists, who were said to be from the northern part of the country, mounted their motorcycles and gave the Edo State indigene a hot chase till he was intercepted around Elepe on the ljede Road.
While one account said the motorcyclists vandalised Yamah’s vehicle and stabbed him to death, another stated that the men stoned the victim to death in broad daylight.
A resident of the area, Segun Ogunyemi, while condemning the action of the motorcyclists, said that the partially sighted man was alive, adding that the suspects took the law into their own hands by killing Yamah.
“Some motorcyclists stabbed a man to death. The man went to Ikorodu and on his way back, he hit someone with his vehicle and the victim fell, but did not die.
“The motorcyclists trailed him from where he hit the person to Elepe, where there are potholes on the road.
“The man had to slow down because of the bad road and it was at that point that they got him. They smashed the windscreen of his vehicle, brought out their daggers, pulled the man out and stabbed him four times in his stomach and he died on the spot. The police have taken the corpse to the mortuary.” he said.
