Lagos Releases Official Statement On How KAI Officials Chase Hawker To Death In Maryland



The Lagos State Government has clarified the misconception surrounding the unfortunate incident where a street hawker was knocked down by an oncoming truck at Maryland Bus Stop on Wednesday.

The street hawker, who was trying to evade arrest from officials of Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI), had attempted to cross the road before being hit by the truck, which was erroneously thought to be a BRT Bus.

As a result, hoodlums armed with sticks and stones, immediately descended on some BRT buses plying the route as at the time of the incident and in the process destroyed several of the BRT buses.

But the Government in a statement signed the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, said that contrary to the information being circulated in the social media that the street hawker was hit by a BRT bus, it was a truck belonging to a soft drink company that unfortunately hit the boy.

Video: Man defends a young black kid being scolded by an elderly white woman for hawking candy outside a store


A video showing the altercation between an elderly woman, a black girl selling candy and a man who intervened outside a Rowland Heights Target Store has gone viral with millions of views. According to the Lady who shared it, she witnessed the white old lady harassing the teenager for selling candy outside the retail store.

“She comes up to the little kid and is like, ‘Where is your license? Have you asked permission to be here?’ And then the kid is like, ‘No, I’m just selling candy. I’m trying to make some money. The Old Lady continued to yell and scream at her, telling her if she didn’t have a permit, she was going to go to jail and the police were on their way.”

A man, later identified as Jay Lopez, walked up to defend the girl who was already in tears. He faced the old lady and told her she should be ashamed of herself for criticizing such a young child (trying to make money through appropriate means). She refused to back down, saying 'they (black kids) do it all over the country' and he should see how they live. Determined to shut her up and end the back-and-forth, he offered to buy the entire lot of candy worth $80. He went to withdraw money, purchased it all and handed them out to fellow shoppers passing by. 

The Lady who shared the video that went viral has been contacted by the woman’s daughter, asking her to take the video down, but she has decided not to until she hears from the teenager.
