Multiples sources on social media warned commuters and residents to be cautious around the area

However, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, claimed that the area is safe.

The PUNCH gathered that the Okada riders who went on the rampage vandalised vehicles in the area.

 

Reacting to the incident, the Lagos PPRO said, “Idi-Araba is safe. Nothing to worry about. Just some lawless motorcycle operators trying to cause trouble after their motorcycles were impounded.

“Our men are fully on the ground. Commissioner of Police Abiodun Alabi personally coordinating our response.

“They can’t fight because Taskforce went well prepared.

“They were just causing a scene after the task force left with some of their impounded motorcycles. Rapid Response Squad and men from the Area Command have since been drafted there. Absolutely nothing to worry about.”
