Soldier Beats Up Bus Conductor To Death At Obalende, Lagos

An unidentified military man, Monday morning beat a bus conductor (names unknown) to death at Obalende in Lagos.
A report monitored on Metro FM by DailyPost, says the man who was dressed in a Nigeria Army uniform, pounced on the deceased following a heated argument over transport fare.
Eyewitnesses say the man had accompanied his wife to the park at Obalende to get a bus to her destination. Within a moment, the late conductor and the woman, exchanged hot words over transport fare.
“That made the unformed man to react. He lost his temper and kept beating the guy, until he died,” one account said.

He was said to have dragged the deceased, raining blows on his head, stomach and chest.
On noticing he had given up the ghost, the officer pulled off his uniform and ran towards some uniformed men who were around the scene in a vehicle. They reportedly sped off, leaving the lifeless body at the park.
The incident, which caused pandemonium, almost escalated into a protest by other transporters but for the intervention of a team of anti-riot police that quickly arrived the area to calm the situation.
DailyPost gathered that the driver of the bus, alongside sympathizers, drove his late colleague to Dodan Barracks to report the matter.
