A Chief Superintendent of Police, Kazeem Abonde, has been killed during a clash between policemen and motorcyclists in the Ajao Estate area of Lagos State.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the policemen were carrying out enforcement in the area on Thursday when they were resisted by the riders, who protested against the seizure of their means of livelihood.

The situation was said to have snowballed into a clash and resulted in the death of Abonde, who was reportedly hacked to death.

Our correspondent saw a photo of the bloodied remains of the policeman as he lay motionless by the roadside. The victim’s head appeared to have been smashed with some objects.

Another photo captured no fewer than 10 persons milling around a damaged patrol van inscribed with the Lagos State Police Command.

A source told our correspondent that the policemen involved in the incident were attached to the Ajao Police Station.

“Everywhere is tense; we don’t know what exactly caused the fight, but we know that there was a confrontation between motorcyclists and the policemen attached to the Ajao Police Station,” the source added.
