Sterling, Another Bank Set Ablaze As Policeman Attached To The Bank Shoots Truck Driver In Lagos
On Wednesday morning a mobile policeman attached to a new generation bank located at Creek road shot and killed a truck driver simply identified as, Tunde for refusing to part with a token of N200 as bribe.
Following the ugly incident, a group of irate truckers burnt Sterling bank and another bank, both located at Creek road.
The truck with registration number AGL222XC was on the queue amongst other trucks who were trying to gain access into the ports to either lift containers or drop empty containers.
After shooting the truck driver, and seeing that he was dead, the mobile policeman ran into a nearby Sterling Bank when he was chased by irate truckers who had mobilised to avenge the death of their colleague.
Sterling Bank and the other bank were burnt by irate truckers. This forced several other banks in Apapa to close for the day, forcing most port users to look elsewhere for banks to make financial transactions.
Also, many vehicles belonging go staffs of both banks had their windscreens smashed. A shipping company beside Diamond bank, Bollore Shipping was not spared as its front glasses were also smashed by the angry truck drivers.
A top staff of Sterling Bank was burnt because they refused to handover the mobile policeman who had ran into the bank for cover after killing Tunde.
