Many vehicles, especially commercial buses have been destroyed, while some persons were assaulted by the aggrieved security operatives.

Some residents heading to work were trapped in the ensuing violence while students have fled back home.

Traders cleaning up their stores on the day of the weekly sanitation also fled just as some transporters abandoned their vehicles.


Soldiers targeting hoodlums are currently marching across the streets.

The situation has compounded the traffic woe in the cosmopolitan city as there is currently no movement in and out the part of Oshodi where the rampaging soldiers are.

Oshodi links other major parts of Lagos and a major bus terminal is in that part of the state.

  1. That’s fake news, your caption said a Naval Officer, but the body of your write up is NAF officer. Why contradicting the issue, by doing that you are misleading the general public and spreading false information. A team has been sent to the scene, there are not such allegations. People are going about there normal activities,, what do you gain by doing that.
