A bus driver kills a coworker and leaves his body in a Lagos park



After being killed by a coworker in Lagos’ Berger neighbourhood, the body of a bus driver was dumped in a park.

The victim, only named as Wasiu, was said to have been abandoned at the park’s entrance.

On Sunday, June 19, Wasiu, who plied Ishaga-Fagba route, had an altercation with a collegue from another park, which led in a brawl, according to Punch.

The following is what an eyewitness told the publication;

” Wasiu picked a fight with someone at the park and went to pick a bottle. But when he smashed it on the ground, the brokeņ pieces hit the baby of  a nearby alcohol seller, the little chilď started bleeding”.

When the baby’s father, Ikman, was notified, he allegedly mobilized his colleagues and beat Wasiu until he was knocked out.

Another source told the publication: “Ikman was a close friend to Wasiu. He also drives a commercial bus plying the Berger-Obalende route. Wasiu would not have died, but Ikman deliberately left him unconscious on the floor after the attack without any attempt to revive him.”

Following Wasiu’s death, some road transport workers at the bus station, thought to be acquaintances of the dead, protested the decision to leave the body at the bus station, claiming it’s an attempt to implicate them.

Police personnel from the Ojodu division,arrived on the other hand, arrived on the spot to de-escalate the situation.

Relatives of the deceased arrived on Monday morning to make arrangements to transport the body for burial. The police, on the other hand, protested the action.

The body was afterwards taken by police, who were accompanied by the deceased’s relatives in a truck.
