Hoodlums Invade Lagos Streets, Loot Shops, Kill Worshipper [Photo]

There was bewilderment on the Lagos Island on Friday when about 50 hoodlums, invaded five streets, where they killed a resident, Ade Busari, and looted several shops.
Busari was killed around 2pm while going for an Islamic prayer.

Online source revealed that the affected streets were Massey, Oke Popo, Odunfa, Onala and Smith streets.
Busari was reportedly killed on Odunfa Street.

We gathered that the hoodlums, who were said to have mobilised from another part of the Lagos Island, vandalised vehicles parked by the roadside.

Policemen from the Adeniji Adele division and operatives of the Rapid Response Squad were said to have attempted to curtail the attack.

A resident on Odunfa Street, who spoke on condition of anonymity, revealed that Busari, who was married with children, was pursued by the armed hoodlums before being hacked to death.

He alleged that Busari was killed by one of the gang’s leaders identified as Azeez, alias Small Zego.

He said, “The boys got to the area around 2pm and began to loot some of the shops. Most traders quickly locked their shops and ran home. The hoodlums did not have guns; but they had daggers and machetes.

An Islamic cleric on Massey Street said the police brought four tanks to the area on Saturday.

He said, “People have refused to come to their shops as a result of the robbery and the death. I could not go for my Islamic prayers on Friday as a result of the tension. But the police brought four tanks to Odunfa on Saturday and peace is gradually returning.”
