The motorcyclist, Abu Alhaji, a 25-year-old father of a 6-month-old child, was said to have taken a woman, who wanted to buy snacks, to an eatery in the Morroco, Shomolu area, while the soldier parked his Toyota Camry on the premises.

Abu was waiting to take the passenger back to her destination when the soldier, Taiwo, who had gone to a beer parlor opposite the eatery, came back to pick his car. It was gathered that while Taiwo reversed his car to exit the premises, the vehicle hit the back of the victim’s motorcycle.

As Abu struggled with the motorcycle, the woman arrived at the scene. An eyewitness, Bolaji Oke, said the woman quickly hit the body of the car to alert the soldier not to run over Abu, who was still battling with the motorcycle.
