According to Mr. Adebisi Babatunde Joseph who was stabbed in four places including his head, as soon as the Taskforce Officers and the thugs they were using to arrest motorcyclists a.k.a Okada riders arrived at the Filling Station, the thugs began to attack anyone on sight.
He added that he had came down from his car to tell the pump attendant to sell fuel for those that came with their vehicles, as he was only selling for those with kegs.
Mr. Joseph said as soon as he turned back to enter his car, the thugs rushed him and stabbed him severally and he slumped, only to regain consciousness in the hospital.
The police officer was attacked at the back of the filling station while attempting to stop the thugs from taking other people’s bikes where they were parked.
When our reporter called the Public Relation Officer (PRO) of Lagos State Taskforce, Mr. Raheem Gbadeyanka to comment on the incident, he vehemently denied the allegation, saying Taskforce officials can never enter Filling Station to arrest motorcycle, adding that it was the Filling Station management that invited thugs by themselves.
