“Per the president’s directives, though partial lockdown has been lifted, rules of social distancing still apply so we the taskforce went to ensure the directives were adhered to.

“Okada riders cannot load because their passengers are too close to them so I made efforts to approach them and explain how the system works,” he explained.

He added that from nowhere, the suspect bit his head and blood started oozing.

Meanwhile, the suspect has been handed over to the police for the law to take its course.
