A group of people has reportedly set two banks in Apapa, Lagos on fire after a policeman attached to Diamond Bank on Burma Road allegedly shot dead some trailer drivers.
According to reports, the group also set a Sterling Bank branch on Wharf Road ablaze.
It was gathered that the trailer drivers had accidentally parked in front of the bank.
Angered by the killing of the trailer driver and the bank’s refusal to hand over the policeman to them, one of the trailer driver’s equals moved to set the bank ablaze, destroying properties and other valuables.
Policemen from Rapid Response Squad, anti-riot squad and Area B command, as well as operatives from the Nigerian Navy Ship BEECEOFT have been deployed to the scene of the incident.
