Danfo driver allegedly beaten to death by policeman in Lagos over bribe

For refusing to give a police officer a bribe, a commercial bus driver has been beaten to death by the policeman.

A policeman drags a civilian while some pedestrians kept their distance.

According to reports, the incident happened in the evening of Sunday, May 22, at the Igando area of Lagos State.

It was gathered that the policeman had stopped the driver and demanded to be 'settled' but the man refused to give him any money, stating that he had already given some other officers some money when he passed the route earlier.

But this explanation did not go down well with the officer who allegedly dragged the driver out of his bus and started beating him.

He did not stop beating the man until he fell inside a drainage and died after hitting his head against the concrete.
