Two People Killed, Many Others Injured As Yoruba And Hausa Youths Clash In Lagos Market [Photos/Video]
The disagreement was said to have degenerated into a fight between the duo.
Soon, hoodlums from both ethnic groups took over the fight, which turned to a free-for-all.
Policemen from the Oke Odo Division deployed in the area were reported to have shot in the air to disperse the hoodlums and bullets hit one of the Bolar boys.
Angered by the development, the Hausa mobilised and stormed the Ilepo Market with stones, bottles and arrows, looting goods and injuring people.
Police teams consisting of the Rapid Response Squad, Lagos State Task Force on Environment and Sanitation (Enforcement) Unit and Mobile Police, later calmed the situation and restored traffic flow, which had been stalled by the affray.
