SWITZERLAND, FEBRUARY 11 – Violence has erupted at Obalende, a densely populated district of Lagos, where members of the state transport union (NURTW) are reportedly clashing with alleged thugs.
Eyewitnesses told Today’s Echo that shots were fired on Thursday morning in the area, known as a busy bus park. A video circulating online shows people scampering away as gunshots can be heard in the background.
“It’s absolute chaos. All commutters should avoid Obalende right now,” an eyewitness told Today’s Echo.
Update: Normalcy returned to Obalende on Thursday afternoon with officers of the Police Rapid Response Squad (RRS) mobilised to the scene.
