According to an eyewitness, the incident happened early this morning at Gudu roundabout in Abuja. He said policemen in their van were chasing a Keke driver and during the chase, the Keke tumbled and caught fire.
The only passenger in the Keke managed to escape unhurt but the driver wasn't so lucky.
He said seeing the Keke and driver on fire, the police quickly left the scene, leaving the man to burn to death. He said this enraged other Keke drivers and some people who witnessed the incident and they began to protest.
He said it took the intervention of military men to disperse the protesters. More photos below…
