A truck was commandeered last Tuesday in the Mile 2 area of Lagos State by unidentified taskforce officials, later found at the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority’s office. The officials, during their unauthorized midnight patrol, tragically killed a truck driver named Toheeb shortly after he left Tincan Island. When they tried to seize his vehicle near the Mile 2 bridge, Toheeb fled, prompting one official to fatally shoot him. They also assaulted his assistant.

Unable to use Toheeb’s truck due to engine failure, they took another truck. This led to protests which the police later managed. Gbadeyan Abdulraheem, the Lagos State Taskforce spokesperson, refuted any agency involvement.

A Lagos Maritime Truck Owners official revealed that after a thorough search, the truck was located at the LASTMA yard in Oshodi. They informed the police, who confirmed the truck’s presence at the command. The official also mentioned that these rogue taskforce officials sometimes operated alongside other uniformed personnel, including armed civilians, with some wearing masks to remain anonymous.

LASTMA’s spokesperson, Taofiq Adebayo, stated that the truck was brought to their facility after being found abandoned, without knowledge of the preceding events. The incident remains under police investigation. Attempts to reach the Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, were unsuccessful at the time of reporting.
