Pictures emerged of two men apparently shooting a motorist on Lagos Island, Nigeria.
The unidentified man was cornered by a stream of forensics and CCTV footage from CCTV cameras at the toll gate.
All that’s missing is the AK-47.
The video only appears to show one-car crash, a car with four men standing on the side of the road; two of them are reaching for rifles. The other man is shooting toward the car at least five times.
It is impossible to tell if the shooting is legitimate because, at first glance, one of the suspects doesn’t appear to be carrying a gun. He comes over to the other driver and the pair hug.
The video opens with a crash on the bridge, and both men still standing in front of the two cars before the shooting starts.
The CCTV footage continues to show the men on the side of the road approaching the vehicle. It is only at that point that the driver on the passenger side of the other car starts shooting and an explosion occurs. The driver on the passenger side then pulls up to his wrecked car and moves to the side of the road to talk to the other man.
The car full of men slowly drives away from the scene on the toll gate.
The Guardian newspaper in Nigeria reported that about eight people were killed in the shootout. But that may be wrong. On Saturday night, 10 corpses arrived at the mortuary at Sola-based St. Luke’s Hospital mortuary, at about 11:35 p.m.
The victims are thought to be returning home from work and were crossing the Lekki-Epe Expressway.
Adam Babatunde Agedi, an MD of the hospital, said the victims were returning from work when they were shot.
“The accident happened at about 7.30 p.m. after their 16-hour work on a job at Alakija in Lagos Island,” Agedi said.
He said all of the victims were Nigerians, and had arrived at the hospital about 11:35 p.m.
“There were nine men, while the body of the fifth person was flown in yesterday,” Agedi said.
