One dies as Yoruba Nation agitators clash with police in Lagos

Sharing is caring!

A yet-to-be-identified male adult has been killed in a clash between Yoruba Nation agitators and the police in the Ojota area of Lagos State on Monday.

Commuters ran to safety in the heat of the pandemonium which broke out in the morning.

It was gathered that Yoruba Nation agitators were protesting to demand for Yoruba Nation amongst others and the police came out to curtail them, leading to a clash.

A police source hinted that shortly after the agitators took to the streets, the men of the Lagos State Police Command came out in procession with a detachment of personnel from Rapid Response Squad, State Taskforce and conventional divisional officers.

The source said two groups, suspected to be Oduduwa Peoples Congress and Yoruba Nation agitators, clashed in the early hours of the day, resulting in one casualty.

The source said police arrived at the scene and shot teargas to disperse the crowd.

Meanwhile, normalcy had been restored as officials of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and Lagos state Taskforce were sighted at strategic points in the area.
