The activities of commercial motorcyclists in various parts of the country have been a topic of concern to many Nigerians. Some commercial motorcyclists in Ibadan recently gathered at the Agodi secretariat in Ibadan to protest the death of one of their colleagues.

During an interview, an eyewitness, Akin, said, "The victim was stopped in the morning while going about his transport business. Those who stopped him were five in numbers, and they were demanding N50 ticket fee from him. One of the assailants hit him with a charm from behind during their heated argument, and he fell to the ground. Three of the assailants got caught, and they were handed to the police. Dare was a peaceful person."

Another eyewitness, Owolabi Abiodun (popularly known as Baba Abu), said, "I saw Dare and those selling tickets in a heated argument, and they hit him with a charm ring before he passed away."
