Lecturer's road rage: 'I fired my gun'

CNN’s Talat Hasan reports on the latest developments from the horrific January 25 shooting on the Toll Gate Bridge in Lekki Lagos, Nigeria.

Two days after a shooting on the Atan toll gate in Lekki, Nigeria’s capital Lagos, several questions remain about the nature of the incident.

Whilst the Nigerian Police said that their investigation has so far established that the attacker was a mentally ill person, authorities have not yet released video footage from the incident.

What exactly happened in the 24 hours before January 25 remains unclear.

One issue that has been explored by the police was whether or not the attacker’s car got stuck in traffic.

However, what was the State Highway Department (SHD) doing?

A Lagos police spokesman said that SHD vehicles were on a routine patrol of traffic conditions, at the time.

There is also a legal question: what happens to a police car when an individual grabs its gun and fires at drivers passing by? The police spokesman said that their weapon is encrypted, and that they did not know how this happened.
