Confusion In Lagos As Hoodlums Clash, Set Market On Fire (PICTURES)

A clash between hoodlums in Lagos State’s Ile-Epo vicinity resulted in injuries to several individuals.  

Naija News understands that a fight started in the area’s market on Wednesday night and extended into Thursday morning, resulting in the burning of shops and the destruction of goods.

Punch Metro correspondent who visited the scene of the incident gathered that the hoodlums restricted an early intervention by the police.

This morning, a fire service truck that entered the market was compelled to retreat after being attacked with stones.
