Hoodlums’ clash in Fadeyi, Lagos earlier today, has left a dispatch rider and one other person dead.
Reports in the area have it that the dispatch rider was hit by a stray bullet and he died immediately.
The fight started at about 11am with sporadic shooting that left people scampering for their lives and the federal road closed down for hours.
No one knows the main cause of the fracas.
“The crisis is not a small matter. Immediately the shooting started, the police on ground ran away, because those boys were heavily armed.
They were not carrying pistols. I don’t know how to describe their guns, but the guns they carried surpassed that of the police in terms of the sophistication. It was after the whole crisis has simmered that the police and some SARS officials came to the scene,” a resident of the area said.
