One Aliyu Shaibu, an Hausa porter, stabbed a Yoruba youth to death, causing violent clash between youths of the two tribes at Mile 12 Lagos.
An eyewitness, Mrs. Adekoya told pressmen that the incident which occurred Thursday immediately turned hot.
“We were already in the market when we heard gunshots and a noise at the back of the market. We got to know that one of the Hausa boys killed a Yoruba porter and the groups started fighting one another.
“We thank God that they were unable to enter the market, but I learnt that they destroyed people’s vehicles and robbed those that could not run. It was a scary scene this morning.”
Then hoodlums siezed the opportunity and had begun to attack people, stealing in and burning vehicles.
