David was lynched and burnt by some irate okada riders in the Lekki area of the state, a sad incident over which 10 suspects were already in the police net.

Speaking with all DPOs and Area Commanders across the state at the Lagos House, Ikeja, Sanwo-Olu said the directive covers all highways and some local governments, including Eti-Osa, Ikeja, Surulere, Lagos Island, Lagos Mainland and Apapa.
