A yet-to-be-identified young Okada rider (motorcyclist) has been brutalised by policemen attempting to seize his motorcycle around Ogundele Street, Oja Oba in the Abule Egba area of Lagos State.

It was gathered that the motorcyclist was going to a destination in the area when the policemen accosted him.

The reason why the policemen accosted the motorcyclist could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report but during the attempt to seize the motorcycle, the motorcyclist resisted.

Angered by the action of the motorcyclist, the three policemen were seen in a 45 seconds video clip recorded by an eyewitness descending on the motorcyclist in a bid to seize the motorcyclist.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, had yet to respond to calls and a text message sent to his phone number as of the time this report was filed.
