Over 100 commercial motorcyclists have attacked Same Global Estate in Lokogoma area of Abuja, to avenge the death of two colleagues.
The incident happened after a motorist allegedly hit the Okada riders on Sunday and ran into the estate for safety.
According to The PUNCH, the Okada riders set two buildings ablaze in the estate.
Residents of the estate told journalists that the motorcyclists attacked the estate in their bid to arrest an unknown motorist.
They added that the motorist was chased by a mammoth crowd of motorcyclists after he overran two motorcyclists.
The medium reported that security operatives had arrived at the estate to prevent breakdown of law and order and further damage to properties.
The estate manager, Mr Adebisi Adelowo, confirmed the incident to newsmen.
He said: “Over 100 Hausa bike riders attacked our estate some hours ago. They tried to burn down the estate by putting fire to two buildings.
“They pulled down our gate and started stoning people’s houses. We couldn’t stop them until the police and the army intervened.
“We later learnt that they attacked our estate because two of their colleagues were knocked to death by a motorist who ran to our estate for safety as he was been chased with big stones and other dangerous weapons.
“The motorist, who is not even a resident of our estate ran into the estate because he noticed a police post in front of the estate.”
