Angry street traders on Tuesday allegedly lynched an official of the Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI) Brigade at Iyana-Oworo, Lagos.

Moshood Ayeni was allegedly lynched because his team arrested hawkers- Jeremiah Nnana and Orich Nwofokoh- displaying their wares in traffic, in disregard to the ban placed by the state government.

The agency’s spokesperson, Alabi Rahmat said in a statement that mob pelted the official vehicle with stones, one of which hit the deceased and fell him from the moving vehicle.

She said: “The enforcement officials were returning from an assignment when they saw the traders and tried to do their jobs. They saw the traders hawking in traffic by Car Wash and arrested Jeremiah Nnana and Orich Nwofokoh both selling sausage and phone accessories.

“The suspects were taken into the agency’s vehicle marked KRD643DS. Suddenly their colleagues, who had escaped came back and pelted the officials with stones. The hawkers started shouting and calling the KAI officials thief.


“The stones thrown by the rampaging hawkers hit the victim on his head inside the vehicle and he fell down and became unconscious.”

According to her, the victim was rushed to the state’s emergency centre, where he was referred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) but was pronounced dead on arrival.
