There are reports of pandemonium around Maryland area of Ikorodu Road (Lagos) as a hawker reportedly fleeing from officials of Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI) was killed by a truck this afternoon (Wednesday, June 29). But many believed the hawker was knocked down by a BRT bus, hence his fellow hawkers and street urchins began attacking BRT buses with stones, damaging them and creating panic.
On Ikorodu Road with my dad and a BRT bus just killed a man. The situation here is getting very heated. Pepe are destroying all the buses.

So the Gist is KAI chased a traffic trader who got hit by a BRT bus, hence the violence against BRT buses on ikorodu road. Avoid that route
