An angry mob has subjected an unidentified police officer to a severe thrashing following an incident involving a man named Yusuf.

TechLife Media  reports that the incident took place in the Ketu area of Lagos State.

Eyewitnesses present at the scene said law enforcement officers, including the beaten policeman, were involved in an attempt to seize possession of Yusuf’s vehicle. The encounter took a wrong turn when Yusuf was allegedly forced onto the path of an oncoming BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) bus, resulting in a collision that left him unconscious and gravely injured.

An observer, who preferred to remain anonymous, levelled blame at the police officers, insisting that their actions directly led to Yusuf’s distressing predicament, reports The Punch.

She revealed that the officers had endeavoured to remove Yusuf from his vehicle, inadvertently sending him into the treacherous BRT lane. This resulted in an inbound BRT bus ploughing into Yusuf.

Another onlooker recounted how the officers, realising the result of their actions, hastily attempted to evade. Noticing this, an outraged mob overpowered the officer at fault, beating him to unconsciousness.

This publication learnt that as the crowd gathered, individuals attempted to revive Yusuf, employing water and other means to restore his consciousness. Also, members of the Ketu Divisional Police Station are on the scene in an effort to restore order and attend to the incapacitated officer.
