March 4, 2016 – Pictures: The Death Toll Of Hausa & Yoruba Clash In Ajiliti Mile 12 Lagos Jumps To 10, 50 Arrested

The death toll of the violent fight that broke out between the AgilitI boys of Yoruba descent and some Hausas in Mile 12 area of Lagos has jumped to 10.

The fight broke out after an Hausa motorcyclist knocked down a pregnant woman and refused to take her to hospital. He said the motorcycle association, which was always quick to collect toll from them, should see to the woman’s medical attention. Angry Yoruba boys impounded his motorcycle and those of other Hausa riders and set them ablaze. The Hausa boys left in a huff.

They regrouped and returned for a reprisal. Before people knew what was happening, the ground had turned red. Yesterday, Yoruba boys stormed the tomatoes section of the market and swooped on Hausa traders. A trader, who gave her name as Mrs. Titilayo said:

“They started fighting since Tuesday evening. At least 10 persons have been killed. Houses and motorcycles belonging to the Hausa men were burnt. Today, the Hausa men came with their men, welding weapons of all kinds.

The Hausa riders were riding against traffic. They were causing accidents every day. That was why the Yoruba boys set their motorcycles on fire.”

Police IGP Owoseni said that over 50 suspects had been arrested in connection with the clash that claimed the lives of 10 people and injured several policemen.

    I urge Gov. AMBODE to initiate immediate investigation of what happened in Mile 12, the actual cause of ugly incident, and how to prevent such tribal tension and destruction of lives and properties from occurring again. However, the masterminders of such massacres should be punished according to the existing laws of Lago state. The governor should demostrate after the investigation that criminal behaviors in term of tribal conflicts will never be tolerated in the “Center of Excellence” by any group or trive in Lago state. Lagos Police Command should be more aggressive in their quest to disarm crooks and criminals fueling this crisis. Finally, the federal government should recruit more police officers, build more police stations based on the population of the area, buy better communication gadgets, vehicles, latest weapons, and increase salaries and benefits of our police officers, all our law enforcement officers, and the military personnel. This will help to reduce violence and crime rates in highey dense areas/states in Nigeria.

    Thanks your Omokehinde for your Terrific comment may God continue to enrich your brain infact you have said it all, that’s only what can solve the situation/problem on ground. The Lagos state government in their house of Assembly should set up a panel to do thorough investigation on it and they should all those that involved in the clash turned violence and bring them to book and face the consequence of their action if not such action will ensue again in that area. God bless Lagos state, God bless Kwara state, God bless state of Osun and God bless Nigerian in general

    Omokehinde your comment is on point as always, but I would like to point out that is it not this same Ambode government that returned okada riders to major highways. Fashola assisted in greatly curbing this menace but now you see okada riders facing incoming traffic even on Eko bridge! This Akinbode government has set us back by at least 4 years.
    Be that as it may nobody should be allowed to take laws into their hands via reprisal attacks!

      Hello Omorin,
      You are absolutely right. The return of reckless Okada riders on major roads in Lagos by Gov. Ambode is a terrible decision and a reverse of Gov. Fashola achievement. If Ambode didn’t access his falling social and economic policies in Lagos state, Ambode will surely be a one term governor of the great state of Lagos. So far, I’m not too impressed with his performance, but he has time to reevaluate his policies in the “Center of Excellence” I will give the governor the benefits of the doubt that he will begin to continue Fashola good job and even add some new progress to it.

    My heart bleeds , what a waste of life, how can we go on like this, wickedness and evil everywhere. it appears lawlessness is the main factor in all of these, they should have let the police deal with it; this tribal rivalry is getting out of hand, the government should do a campaign to sensitized the populace on this issue of jungle justice to make people aware that it is not acceptable and anyone found breaking the law should be severely dealt with.

    Yorubas are harvesting what they plant, that is just the begining. Up buhari,he will take nigeria to the next level

    I think not just d Lagos state government should take a look at d situation president buhari should specially set up good police or military osfficer panel that will take a look at dis kind of situation this is getting too much if Hausa and yoruba are not fighting today then it will be Hausa and Igbo or egun so just jailing this people or sacking police and army find to be too corrupt or supporting one group more than d order is not d solution I think d first thing that needs to be done is for some of our political and police leaders show good example how do u expect an ordinary police officer that’s getting between 30 to40thosand naira respect d system or d law when he saw how politicians are stealing millions and billions of US dollars that won’t make sense or be justified to anybody or police officer during d time of tafabalogun as d inspector general of police he was systematically asking poor police officers who are earning about25thousand naira to give him d five thousand naira on top so that he and his family can be rich fat and happy and d poor police man go home and suffer with there family so when they expose what he was doing to president obasanjo who have no idea of what was happening to d police then obasanjo got Tafa balogun arrested and jailed Tafa exposed senior officer which he believed were corrupt to d authority that’s y some are fired and some are left alone to continue with there job when there’s no enough evidence to convict some other senior officers when late president yaradua take over power in nigeria d first thing he did was to declare all is asset president buhari did d same and this will give people more confidence in d system so just d public or police secretly recording police officer taking big bribe as evidence of there corruption or law breaking alone will not sort out all this problems.
