Lagos: Four hospitalised, five arrested as Hausa, Yoruba clash

F

our persons have been admitted in hospital while five others were arrested following a clash between Hausa and Yoruba at Ilepo Market area of Lagos State.

 

 

The clash, which started since Saturday, allegedly left many people injured. A witness claimed that trouble started after Hausa traders refused to pay market royalty, but the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Bala Elkana, said such claims should be disregarded.

 

 

Elkana explained that on August 18, at about 10a.m., Alhaji Adekunle Habib of Ilepo Market reported at Oke-Odo Police Station that there was a misunderstanding between a Hausa scavenger and an “Area Boy” from Yoruba ethnic group.

 

 

He said: “The area boy was carrying some goods on his head, when he was mistakenly pushed by the Hausa boy. His goods fell down. An argument ensued between the two parties, leading to exchange of blows. Friends of the two parties joined in solidarity fight and other miscreants took advantage of the moment to steal and loot.

 

 

“They blocked the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway. What started as a fight between two miscreants almost snowballed into ethnic crisis, if not for the timely intervention of police teams from Oke-Odo Division.”

 

 

The PPRO said the command sent reinforcements from the Operations Department, Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Task Force, Tactical Units and Police Mobile Force. Divisions within the Area Command equally sent reinforcements.

 

 

He added: “The situation was brought under control and traffic cleared. No death was recorded, but four persons sustained various degrees of injury and are receiving medical attention.

“Five suspects, Kabiru Mohammed, Kabiru Adamu, Bashiru Mohammed, Saliu Madu and Yusuf Amuda, were arrested in connection with the breach of peace. Normalcy has been restored and patrols are ongoing in the affected areas. Suspects will be charged to court,” Elkana added.

Insecurity: Gov Sani Bello signs agreement with bandits
  • Pardons 13 detained crooks

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has pardoned and released 13 bandits who have been terrorising parts of the state saying “we entered into an understanding with them to end their activities”.

He said this on Saturday at the 2nd General Abdulsalami Abubakar Foundation Annual Peace Lecture that the bandits made their demands as Nigerians.

While delivering a lecture titled “Good Politics at the Service of Peace: The role of Eminent Persons in the Prevention and Management of Conflict in Nigeria” at the Legbo Kutigi International Conference Centre, Minna, the governor also blamed certain politicians for heightening tensions and insecurity in the country with their utterances and actions.

According to him: “We signed a peace pact with them (bandits) and there is no better day to enforce that peace than today being World’s Peace Day, and I am pleased to inform you that since we had the understanding, there has been peace in that part of the state.

“We have expended a lot of resources using military solutions but at the same time we have decided to go into dialogue. And we found out that the dialogue we engaged in is beginning to yield positive results in some parts of the state.”

The governor, while declaring that the World Peace Day is a better time to enter a peace pact, said: “In our last meeting, we had an agreement and we requested from them to stop their activities and they also requested from us to release some of their members that were presumed to be unlawfully detained as part of steps to resolve the menace and to get peace.

“They are here today, these are people who feel oppressed; they have not been captured in the federal and states’ budgets; these are people that their ways of living and survival have not received the desired attention; these are people that are aggrieved; these are people that have been attacked.

“They feel they have been forced into carrying weapons and other dangerous weapons. We opened dialogue with them to stop their activities within a certain district or a certain part of the state.”

He further disclosed that the bandits made their demands as Nigerians, adding that “they have their prices; they have their worries; they also want to live in the comfort of homes but they are forced to remain in the bush”.

Governor Sani Bello also condemned the support being given to the now proscribed Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) saying that such support was capable of disintegrating the country.
