"If all bikes were registered to bike hailing services, this would never happen because riders are vetted...and if it did, it would be much easier to track the rider and the bike, and in turn, burst the gang. But then again, agenda must agend."
"Guys like this are usually part of a syndicate. It's the brazen arrogance in broad daylight for me."
"These are folks government empowered to counter #EndSARS protesters, now they can't control them anymore."
