There was pandemonium earlier today in Sapele, Delta state following an accident between a young man and tipper driver.
According to journalist Sapele Oghenek, the young man believed to be an internet fraudster otherwise known as ‘Yahoo Boy’ was said to have controlled his group of friends after the accident with the tipper.
The guys reportedly blocked the road by burning tyres as they prevented other cars from passing as they blamed the tipper driver for the accident.
Police officers arrived the scene in order to calm the tension.
In the course of fostering peace, the young men resisted arrest after being requested by the police to follow them to the station for further interrogation.
While resisting arrest, one Austin was shot in the ribs and was rushed to Sapele clinic for treatment.
Some soldiers were reported to have finally arrived the scene to control the chaos.
