A Twitter user named @EmmyZuel posted a video on Tuesday, December 15 which captures when a the man blocked a commercial bus (Danfo) driver, brought out a cane and tried to force him inside his booth.
“So this nigga! Blocked the danfo driver after beating him, opens his boot and told him to enter… madness in Lagos.”
Pinaxonline.com noticed that one of the stickers on his car reads ‘Lagos State Government official’. In the video the oppressor kept on asking the Danfo driver “If he knows who he is”. When he tried to force the man into his booth, eyewitnesses stepped in by asking “what did he do?”
This video has generated reactions online and many Nigerians have called for the arrest of the man. Others have also said that the Danfo driver should have stood up for himself. However, as of the time of filing this report, the Lagos State Rapid Response Unit and other law enforcement agencies haven’t commented on the incident.
