According to online reports, the incident happened in the Sangotedo Area of Lagos on Friday, March 11.
A video of the incident shared online showed the rider being assaulted by a mob who later dragged him to a police station.
One of the persons in the background was heard saying, “This is the child that was abducted.”
The state police command is yet to comment on the incident.
