In Lagos, soldiers assaulted a police officer and a LASTMA official.
Along the Eko Bridge in Lagos on Wednesday morning, some Nigerian Army troops assaulted a police officer and a representative of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority.

The policeman and LASTMA officer halted the troops' car on a one-way street, according to information received, and told them to turn around and move to the right lane.

It was discovered that tension had developed since neither party could reach a compromise following confrontations.

According to reports, the troops jumped on the two officials and started beating them after refusing to turn around.

Our correspondent discovered that a different group of soldiers, who were travelling in the right lane of the road, pulled over when they saw the situation and joined their fellow soldiers in assaulting the authorities.

The injured officials are reportedly undergoing medical care in the hospital even though the situation has reportedly calmed down and both parties claim to have expressed regret.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the event to our correspondent but noted that all had been addressed.

"Yes, the incident occurred this morning (Wednesday) along Eko bridge," he responded.

Now that everything has been resolved, our man is receiving medical care at a hospital. There is no reason to be concerned because both sides have apologised to one another. The situation is in good hands.

He continued, "In Lagos State, the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Police Force will continue to coexist in harmony.
