Photos from the Massive Protest in Igando After Hausa Trader Killed Driver Over N30

Scene of the incident 

Serious commotion overtook the Igando area of Lagos State on Monday after a 40-year-old Hausa trader identified as Ibrahim Adamu, allegedly killed a bus driver, Lekan Adeleke at the Mojeed Sanni Street area.

The deceased had bought noodles worth N230 from the suspect’s son on Sunday around 10.30pm. He was reported to have paid N200 and promised to pay the balance of N30 the following day, which didn’t go down well with the suspect’s son.

The son allegedly reported to his father, Adamu, who became angry and attacked 30-year-old Adeleke with a spiked plank. The victim reportedly slumped and hit his head against the concrete edge of a gutter in the area.


According to Punch newspaper, friends of the victim and some angry residents, went on rampage as they made a bonfire on the road as they chased away Hausa traders in the community, threatening to avenge the killing.

The police team from the Igando division, reportedly led by the Divisional Police Officer, Olatunji Ajimuda, who stormed the area, took Adeleke’s corpse to a mortuary, while the suspect, who was saved from being mobbed to death, was taken to the Area M command.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said investigations were ongoing.

She said, “It was a case of murder. One Adamu used a plank to hit a bus driver, Adeleke, in the head which led to his death. The corpse was deposited in the Mainland General Hospital morgue for autopsy.

Meanwhile, we have intensified patrol in the area as normalcy has been restored.”
