A 22 year old motorcycle rider has been allegedly killed by a bullion van at Oke Ilewo area of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The incident reportedly caused violent reactions from some residents of the area.
According to eyewitness accounts, the middle aged man, simply identified as Gbenga Okesola, was on an errand for his elder brother when he was hit and killed by the bullion van.
The alleged nonchalant attitude of Policemen following the bullion van towards the deceased irked the residents who took to the streets to protest the death of the young man.
Normalcy, however, returned to the scene of the accident with residents of the area going about their normal businesses after the initial violent reaction which trailed the death.
