According to reports, the incident occurred in Lagos' Sangotedo area, with a mob descending on the unidentified rider.
The rider was pummeled by a mob as he was brought to a police station, according to a video of the incident published on Twitter.
"This is the kidnapped youngster," one of the people in the background could be heard saying.
The police have yet to comment on the incident, which has sparked debate about the state's high crime rate.
