Touts Remove Keke Marwa Rider’s Tooth Over N120 Ticket

A commercial tricycle rider, Wasiu Bamidele, lost one of his teeth to touts, believed to be working for a council, who attacked him in Ojodu Berger area of Lagos State.

Bamidele stated that his tricycle was also crashed by the touts, who were involved in an accident while they were trying to drive his tricycle to their office.
He also alleged that the touts have been threatening him due to his demand for a new tricycle.
The victim explained to Lagos Metro that “I was working on that day, when they stopped me and demanded for the N120 council ticket. I told them that I did not have it and promised to pay it after that trip but they refused and insisted on impounding my bike. The council officials then descended on me and removed one of my teeth in the process before going away with my tricycle.”
He identified the council touts as: Sugar, the leader of the gang; Anjorin; Emma; Babalola and Baba Kabiru.
He explained further how the council touts crashed his tricycle while on the way to their office. “One of them rode the tricycle, while the others joined him and on their way, the tricycle was involved in a very serious accident. They abandoned the tricycle at a side of the road but the police later came and the five of them were arrested but released that same day,” Bamidele said.
He lamented that, “They have spoilt my tricycle and the damage is too much. I want a new one but they are adamant that the best they can do for me is to repair it. I bought that tricycle on instalmental purchase and I have not finished paying.”
Efforts to get the reaction of the image maker in charge of the state police command, Dolapo Badmos, failed, as calls to her mobile phone were not answered.
