Following the death of a yet to be identified man, pandemonium reportedly broken out at the Orile Agege area of Lagos, at about 7pm during an occasion allegedly organised by the Branch Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), which took place on  Olurinde street in the area.

According to Vanguard, the occasion drew many NURTW Orile Agege members and chieftains but while the occasion was at its peak, one of the chieftains was said to have responded to music by spraying some Naira notes.

It was learnt that in the process, some area boys eulogised him and picked some of the notes but were chased by his body guards and this resulted in a fisticuff.

In order to safeguard the chieftain, one of the body guards was said to have shot into the air to scare the crowd but one of the area boys was hit by a stray bullet and he died on the spot.

Policemen from Elemere were said to have intervened as people scampered for safety.

Effort to get the reaction of NURTW state chairman Tajudeen Agbede proved abortive as his cell phone was unreachable.
