Three persons have been confirmed dead in the Hausa/Fulani clash that happened at the Abbatoir area in Agege, Lagos state yesterday September 7th. According to eyewitnesses, trouble started two days ago when a Hausa girl was allegedly beaten up by a Fulani man without any cogent reason. The matter was reported to the Serikin Fulani in the area but he did not take any action to address the complains from the Hausa community who then took laws into their hands and attacked the Serikin’s palace. The Fulani’s decided to go on a reprisal attack yesterday September 7th.
Houses and cars were burnt during the attack. Officers of the Lagos state Rapid Response Squad were on hand to help maintain law and order.
