Chaos As Hoodlooms Clash In Mushin Area Of Lagos State
No fewer than 150 vehicles parked in compounds and by the roadsides were reportedly vandalised after a clash between two factional gangs in the Mushin Local Government Area of Lagos State.
According to a report in The Punch, the battle between the two rival gangs escalated last Saturday during a party organised by a lady on Olanrewaju Street, off Itire Road.
The unnamed lady was reportedly in a relationship with two men, each from the two factions.
It was said that members of both gangs had attended the party that day and as it progressed, a fight broke out between gang members.
A source who pleaded anonymous recounts: “The lady that organised the party was dating members of both factions. The lady was given a post in her church and she celebrated it on that day. The party could not contain the two rival gangs.”
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the police had started a regular patrol of the areas.
He said, “Arrests were made and suspects have been charged to court. A raid was also conducted and five male suspects were taken to the Lagos State Task Force office in Oshodi.
“Apart from police patrol, we are also holding meetings with stakeholders in the communities to avoid any breakdown of law and order.”
