Yoruba/Hausa Clash: Tension in Lagos community as one killed, many injured

There is tension in a Lagos community as Yoruba and Hausa reportedly engaged in a bloody clash at Agboju, along Mile2-Badagry expressway.

It was learnt that the argument which degenerated into a fisticuff and caused tension started between a Hausa man and a Yoruba commercial motorcycle rider (Okada). It was gathered that some Hausa groups supported the Hausa to beat the Yoruba man who was having upper hand to death and set him ablaze with his motorcycle.

This incident infuriated the Yoruba who opted for reprisal attack and engaged the Hausa in a free-for-all. It was gathered that the fight lasted for hours and people were seen scampering for safety.

Speaking on the incident, an undisclosed Police officer said only those who witnessed what happened will appreciate the pro-activeness of the Police.

“All the divisions under Area-E Command were mobilised and they moved to the scene and took over the scene”, he said.
