A similar event has occurred in the Federal Capital Territory, two weeks after Okada riders and traders battled at Dei Dei Marker in Abuja (FCT).

Sunday at approximately 1:30 p.m., a driver killed two motorcyclists in the Global Estate, Dakwo, Galadimawa neighbourhood.

The motorist reportedly retreated into the Estate to avoid the fury of other Okada riders, as his attackers pursued him.

According to reports, irate Okada riders vandalised estate property and set homes on fire.

However, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Josephine Adeh, stated that no residences were burned during the event.

She acknowledged that the Okada riders had attacked the estate, but stated that normalcy had been restored after police intervention.

She stated that the Commissioner of Police in charge of the FCT, Mr. Babaji Sunday, dispatched a large number of officers to the location to restore order.

“It is essential to note that, contrary to circulating rumours, no house was burned,” she said.

Adeh pledged the command’s dedication to protecting lives and property within the FCT.

She urged the public to remain calm and go about their normal activities without fear of harassment and assault from any source.
