The okada riders later descended on BRT buses plying the area and broke several windscreens.
It was gathered that passengers in the BRT buses fled in every direction as the irate okada riders started throwing stones.
There was pandemonium in the area as people ran for their lives to avert being caught in the clash between the okada riders and Task Force.
In the ensuing violence, okada riders burnt tyres on the BRT lane and dared anyone to challenge them.
Many people resorted to trekking as the BRT buses stayed off the road to avoid the wrath of okada riders.
On Tuesday, okada riders in Mile 2 area attacked police officials, damaged three vehicles and injured one of the officials.
