Tension Rises As Two Tribes Clash In Lagos Market, One Dead, Market Shut Down

A clash between Yoruba and Hausa indigenes erupted at Oluwole Market in Ogba, Ojodu Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, resulting in the tragic death of a young man named Abbey.

The conflict began when Abbey intervened in a dispute between two Hausa men, only to be fatally stabbed by an unidentified assailant.

This incident escalated tensions between the two groups, leading to a violent reprisal that caused chaos and destruction in the market.

Eyewitnesses described scenes of panic as residents and motorcycle riders fled for safety amidst the turmoil.

The clash resulted in the destruction of food items, particularly peppers and onions, sold by Hausa traders in the market.

While the Lagos State Police Command has not yet issued an official statement on the matter, police presence was observed at the scene in an effort to quell the violence and restore order.
