A commuter bus driver, Tajudeen Durodola, driving a Faragon bus with registration numberÂ LAGOS XX 488 BDG, has appealed to an unidentified sergeant in the Nigerian Army who drives aÂ metalic ash coloured Passat wagon car with registration number LAGOS HW 328 EKY, to returnÂ his bus.
The vehicle was seized from him at Obalende bus stop last week Thursday night over a minorÂ scratch on the bumper of his car.
Narrating his ordeal to P.M.NEWS, Tajudeen said he was reversing his bus to enter AjegunleÂ park at Obalende bus stop when the soldier in full uniform with the rank of a sergeant, butÂ whose identity could not be asceertained because it was dark, hit his car bumper on theÂ front tyre of his bus.
â€œBefore I knew it, the soldier alighted from his car with a cutlass to attack me, but IÂ quickly jumped out through the other door and escaped to safety while he was stillÂ harrassing people, asking them where I was. I quickly ran to nearby Dodan Barracks to reportÂ the incident at the Military Police unit.
â€œBefore I came back to the scene of incident with a military police officer, my colleaguesÂ told me he had driven my vehicle away with the help of some soldier colleagues and allÂ efforts to trace the vehicle in all the military and police formations around Lagos IslandÂ proved abrotive till date.
â€œI am now appealing to military authorities to prevail on the soldier to release my bus forÂ the sake of my children,â€ he pleaded, pledging to repair any damages on the soldierâ€™s car.
