Violence as soldiers invade Lagos market, chase away traders

Armed soldiers on Friday morning invaded the Jakande market in Ketu, Lagos State, chasing away traders.

One person was allegedly killed in the violence that ensued as touts, in retaliation, took to the streets, destroying property. The death is yet to be confirmed.

The thugs also went to the police station in the area, destroying cars packed there. They also vandalised BRT buses in the area.

Many traders were seen taking refuse at a filling station close to the market.

The cause of the invasion by the soldiers and the violence was yet to be ascertained at the time of this report.

A police team at the scene later shot sporadically into the air to disperse the thugs.
