Security man in Palmgrove Estate battered after soldier is killed by BRT bus

So it's been confirmed that a BRT bus killed a soldier at Palmgrove bus stop in Palmgrove, Lagos this morning, which caused the soldier rampage.

The BRT driver who hit the soldier ran into Palmgrove estate in order to avoid the wrath of other soldiers present. Upon noticing that the driver ran away, the Army men ran into Palmgrove estate and when they couldn't find the driver, seized one of the Estate's security men. (pictured above)

According to eye-witnesses, the soldiers beat the man mercilessly and took him away.

He was released hours later badly beaten and traumatized. He had nothing to do with the incident but paid for it. Sad! Heard they even burnt down a BRT bus. Is their anger justified?

what army officers did this morning is not justified. Accident can happen any time and any where is not intentional but what is happeninmg now at western avenue does not speak good about them, burning down the blue brts and deflecting the tires is on call for, assume is a private car or yellow bus that hit the army office, will they raze down all the private cars on the road? disappointed with they action this morning.....the whole road is blocked and passengers everywhere....pls Fashola should intervene.

BONARIO NNAGS said...

Its quite unfortunate the kind of people entrusted with the security of lives and property of Nigerians. Many mad men hiding under the uniform. They're always looking for any slight opportunity to deal with innocent citizens. When the real issue comes up they'll be found wanting.

Definitely not. I don't blame the BRT driver for the accident but the dead soldier. After all, the government have provided pedestrian bridge to avert avoidable death like this. Several times I have seen these military and police officers display flagrant abuse of the law thinking they are above the law and an institution. Its surprising that the soldiers could motivate themselves to destroy tax payers infrastructures, harass and brutalize innocent citizens but to move to sambisa forest and bring back our girls they find it difficult. I rest my case

Dondippino said...

No their anger is not justified, this shows that we are breeding potential war criminals in the country. Accidents happen in which anyone can be a victim. The military should stop regarding the civilians as inferior,because they are meant to protect the civilians. Remember they were born civilians and may die as civilians as well. There is something called the rule of law, which must be respected by everyone.

Linda, the soilders responsible for this should be severely dealt with. I work in Palmgrove estate, you need to see the smoke, those soldiers are animals....Boko Haram is up north they are terrorizing innocent civilians down south. SO So SAD!!! I also know the estate security guy, Very gentle and nice..he doesnt even look for trouble, he was just doing his job.

I hope Lagos State Government will look into this situation; we cant continue to be terrorized by those who are meant to protect us..And by the way, i thought the lane is mainly meant for BRTs....well, its been a while i was in Lagos, wouldnt know if there has been a change...

Am not surprised that it is Solders that kills civillians in the North and them they blame it on Boko Haram members in military uniform. Bunch of idiots.

Anonymous said...

Their anger isn't justified wrt beating an innocent person, but for burning the buses, they are justified. BRT drivers are the most reckless humans on the highway. They don't respect other road users or human lives. They should infact burn all BRTs buses they sight today.

My dear, it has always been like this and i don't see it changing. They beat innocent civilian and no one make them pay for it. The are the second class citizen of Nigeria behind the Polithiefcians, so they are untouchable. God will deliver the rest of us who did not fall into the two categories.

Anonymous said...

simple madness!!!>>>first of all according to reports the soldier was riding okada on the express and trying to navigate thru the brt lanes and was thus knocked down......Question: is there not a law banning the use of okada on express lanes? is there also not a law prohibiting any vehicle from using the brt lanes? and lastly... are the military above the law?...and to those justifying the action i ask this question.....should all bad drivers(and we sure got lots of them in lagos)....commercial or personal be made to face what just happened?....cos am sure that if mu are to mention the worst driving moves around it by men in uniform

Titilayo Gold said...

They r jt so wicked and heartless

ola oni said...

They are not justified in beating the security man and burning the buses
Agreed some brt drivers are reckless but not all.
The questions are
what is d soldier doing on brt lane in d first place?
If it were a civilian would the soldiers respond?
What are these useless,inadequte idiots still doing in Lagos when they know they can fight( they should be in The North)
But I hope this issue isn't swept under d rug as usual.
And I think it should be announced through all media houses BRT LANE IS FOR BRT ONLY!

Titilayo Gold said...

Instead of u beating innocent ppl y nt go face d BKs in sambisa forest idiots

Do not mind them instead of they to use all this their power they are demonstrating to combat the BH they are here wasting their strenght on powerless civilians. Stupid and shamless military.

Kennedy Chidinma said...

Is so unfortunate about what has happened, their action is not justified, but critically looking @ d whole scenario, the security man. Was beaten becos they must assumed he saw the BRT driver ran into the Estate and trying to shield him, and again, the beating of people. And burning down BRT buses will not bring back the dead soldier. But Nigerian be fair to our security men, becos if not for their effort, this country would have be something like Somalia and any other lawless society. When a security is killed, no body ask any question as if they are not human beings, but when a security man kills any person including criminals, human rights will begin to shout. We should not expect less of what is done becos they are not civilians and we won't expect them to be civil in their dealings. Linda, pls post that anyone with useful information to the apprehension of the BRT driver that killed a soldier should volunteer such information instead of hiding him.

this is so wrong. Solders are so brutal in Nigeria esp the uneducated ones. They should have punished the BRT Driver for his reckless rather than destroy and harass citizens. #PICCANTO#

So much indiscipline in the Military, while i do not support what the Army boys did, i think the Lagos State Govt should warn these BRT drivers, they are reckless on the road and have caused so many accidents recently. But the Army must produce those that burnt those buses and dismiss them.

Was the soldier supposed to be on his bike on a brt lane. Or is the drive mad that he will run him down on purpose. Oh sorry they are security officers to can do anything they like. Did the soldiers give any allowance for him to be apprehended. They came out for thier own jungle justice. They should have allowed the police as it didn't happen in thier barracks.
