Protest: Police confirm one dead in Lagos


The Police Command in Lagos State said one person was reportedly killed, while one policeman sustained injury during the protest by some Yoruba Nation agitators at Ojota area on Monday.

The command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident.

Hundeyin, however, did not give the number of arrests, stressing that investigation into the case had begun as peace returned to the area.

At the scene, members of the Lagos State Taskforce, OP MESA, and other police divisions, were seen dispersing the crowd with tear gas.

A security vehicle belonging to a bank was burnt and three others damaged by the protesters.

Many commuters were stranded at Ketu and Ojota as vehicles were not available, forcing them to trek.
