The Lagos State Police Command in Lagos State has arrested two people suspected of being involved in the killing of a truck driver in the Mile 2 area of the state.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the arrest on Wednesday.
He said that the truck had been towed to the Lagos State Transport Management Agency (LASTMA) yard in Oshodi.
“Two suspects have been arrested, and they are helping the police with the ongoing investigation,” he said.
Earlier on Tuesday, there were unconfirmed reports that men of the state task force allegedly killed a yet-to-be-identified person in Mile 2, along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
This led to protests by some people, who set up bonfires on the ever-busy road.
Hundeyin told NAN that the police received conflicting reports about the killing around 1 am on Tuesday.
He said the motorboy of the truck was also injured and was receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
“The claims cannot be confirmed yet. Information is still sketchy. The situation has been brought under control. Police patrol teams have arrived, and the obstacles are being cleared for the free flow of traffic,” he said.
