ABOUT 40 people were injured  in Lagos, on Wednesday,  during a clash between some Yoruba youths and Hausa settlers between the Marine Bridge and Ijora-Badia areas of the state.


The cause of the mayhem could not be immediately ascertained, as the neighbourhood was in confusion, causing residents to flee the vicinity.


Nigerian Tribune, however, gathered that no sooner than the riot broke out that a  detachment of anti-riot policemen was dispatched by the Lagos State police command to dislodge the rioters.


It was further learnt that some of the feuding parties were also said to have been arrested, while normalcy had been restored in the area.


Unconfirmed report, however, said the crisis started between two men (Hausa and Yoruba), who were allegedly fighting over perceived  injustice and partiality against one of the Northerners.


Efforts to confirm the number of casualties and people arrested at the scene of the fracas from the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Frank Mba, did not yield results, as his GSM phone was switched off up till the time of filing this report.

No one ever thinks of what will happen to them if they injure or kill someone. They just do the act and later suffer being locked up or killed themselves. Take your matter to the courts and stop killing each other. These methods of fighting makes it easier for other countries to take you over.
