There was pandemonium yesterday in Fadeyi, Lagos when social miscreants otherwise known as area boys clashed leaving two persons dead.
Those who lost their lives are dispatch rider, who was hit by stray bullet, and a member of one of the factions.
During the crash residents scampered in different directions for safety as sporadic gunshots rented the air; also commercial activities, vehicular movement along the busy Ikorodu Road, was stalled.
It was learnt that a team of policemen that stormed the area with the intention of arresting the situation left the scene for re-enforcement.
“The dispatch rider ran into them. Before he could make a U-turn, a bullet hit him, killing him on the spot. This is not the first time we are witnessing such fight here”, a resident said under condition of anonymity.
However, reacting to the crash, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Elkana Bala, said 33 persons had been arrested, adding that investigation was ongoing.
