Within in just a day, the video gathered 17.4k on Twitter and tweeps gave their two cents on the situation.

Social media user @MalvinT4 wrote, "That was just plain homicide or planned assassination. The driver deliberately drove over the pedestrian. He even went off road to effectively target his victim."
Another tweep, @petebull789, commented: "That was clearly intentional and driver must be brought to book...this is so wrong..."
John Sukazi, who goes by the Twitter handle @john_sukazi, commented: "Iyoh! This was so intentional. The taxi driver even drove on top of him to finish the job. And why is the guy in a white top running away."

According to one tweep, the taxi allegedly belongs to a crime lord, who owns 24 other taxis as well.
