How police killed young man in Lagos

Eniafe was reportedly shot on Wednesday while in a queue at a petrol station that belonged to the Nigerian Petroleum Company Limited in the Obalende area in Ikoyi Lagos state.

It was learnt that Eniafe was shot dead during a resistance move by him and some others against the security agents who were allegedly trying to join the queue.

The incident happened amid fuel scarcity in the country, and many Nigerians have been in queues at petrol stations across the country.

Several petrol stations in the country have increased their prices to between N700 to N1000 for the commodity which earlier cost between N500-N600.
