A clash between traders and commercial motorcyclists, known as Okada riders, is said to have murdered a number of people in Dei Dei, a town in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).



In the ensuing mayhem, shops, houses, and vehicles were set ablaze, according to Naijacrawl.

According to Naijacrawl, the conflict was caused by an accident involving a commercial motorcyclist.

"Attack between traders and Okada riders in a very large market in Nigeria's Federal Capital City, Abuja." "I'm not sure how many people have been killed right now," he stated.

Following the alleged irresponsible riding of the commercial motorcycle she had taken, a truck allegedly crushed a woman to death.

The deceased Igbo woman was said to be on a bike when the accident occurred. “She died while being rushed to the hospital,” an eyewitness told Naijacrawl.

The tragedy compelled some traders in the area to run after the motorbike and set it ablaze. This triggered a reprisal from commercial motorcyclists in the area.

The rampaging commercial motorcyclists allegedly blocked the expressway and attacked motorists in the process.

Many vehicles and shops, particularly the ones selling building materials, were said to be burnt and destroyed.

A source also said some churches were also attacked, leaving many people injured.

Motorists were forced to take alternative routes to avoid being caught up in the melee.

As of the time of filing this story, security operatives had been deployed to the area to restore law and order.

The agitated youths who witnessed this burnt the motorcycle at the building materials market in Dei-Dei, Abuja. "As at the time of filing this report, the police are already at the scene and trying to quell the situation,” one of the eyewitnesses said.
