A bus driver kills a coworker and puts his body in a Lagos park.


On Monday, there was fear in the Berger neighbourhood of Lagos State as the lifeless body of a bus driver was discovered near a motor park.

The corpse, only named as Wasiu, was said to have been abandoned near the park's entrance about midnight.

On Sunday, the late driver, who worked the Ishaga-Fagba route, had an altercation with a colleague from another park, which led in a brawl, according to INFOGONG.

"Wasiu picked a fight with someone at the park and went to pick a bottle," an eyewitness stated on condition of anonymity. However, as he crushed it on the ground, the fragmented pieces struck a nearby alcohol vendor's baby, causing the child to bleed."

However, rumours that the baby died after being brought to the hospital enraged his father, named as Ikman.

According to the witnesses, Ikman gathered his colleagues and attacked Wasiu with weapons till he passed out.

Except for the bloated face, there was no sign of violence on the body, according to our correspondent who witnessed it.

Some of his coworkers, who were present at the time, speculated that he may have experienced internal bleeding.

"Ikman was a good buddy of Wasiu," another insider claimed. He also operates a commercial bus service between Berger and Obalende. Wasiu would not have perished if Ikman had not left him motionless on the floor after the attack and made no attempt to resuscitate him."

Some bus park employees, who are believed to be acquaintances of the dead, objected to the decision to leave the body there, claiming that it was an attempt to implicate them.

When a team of police officers from the Ojodu division arrived on the scene, normalcy was restored.

Meanwhile, relatives of the dead, who had arrived from Ibadan that morning, were seen putting the finishing touches on plans to transport the body for burial. The police, on the other hand, protested the action.

The body was afterwards taken by cops, who were accompanied by the deceased's relatives in a truck.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, said he was unaware of the occurrence.
