Nigerian soldiers blocked roads and burned several buses in Lagos on Friday after a soldier was killed in a bus accident, Reuters said. “The rampaging soldiers already burnt five buses,” said Femi Oke-Osanyitolu, director general of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, calling their actions “barbaric and uncivilized.” No injuries were reported. The protesters were reacting to the killing of a soldier who was hit by a bus while riding a motorcycle. Nigerian bus drivers have a reputation for reckless driving. However, it was not clear who was at fault in the incident. 13:1
