Lagos hoodlums attack Muslim worshippers, rob residents

Date:

There was pandemonium in the Marina, Lagos Island area of Lagos State on Sunday when some hoodlums attacked Muslim worshippers in the community.

The gang deployed different weapons, including knives, daggers, cutlasses and others during the fracas.

An eyewitness, Adigun Ademola, said the group had invaded the Muslim’s prayer ground park and robbed residents.

He said, “What happened was that the hoodlums who stay in the area, upon seeing worshippers after observing Iftar, started robbing them and the Muslim group resisted.

“This was what led to the clash between them; the hoodlums take advantage of any situation to dispossess people of their belongings. Many people lost money to those boys.”

Another eyewitness said, “They saw that people were moving around after the Iftar. So, in the early hours of Sunday, those agberos started harassing people and dispossessing them of their belongings.

“This was what led to the clash between them as the worshippers decided to fight back and defend themselves.”

The Lagos State police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the incident was not reported to the police.

He urged people to always report affray to the police for prompt action.

“This is the only way we can move in and rescue people,” he added.
