Policemen ‘Catch Fun’ As Hoodlums Fight Dirty In Lagos
There was a commotion in the Iyana Iba area of Lagos on Wednesday after hoodlums said to be from the Agbado area clashed.
The horrific fight, Omadaily understands, happened before officers of the Nigeria Police Force who were seen fully dressed in their uniforms walking around the scene.
It is yet unclear what the genesis of the fight was, but the hoodlums could be seen in viral videos throwing stones and sharp objects at each other from distances while they move at range to attack the opponent group.
One of the police officers is captured on camera making a video of the events while other personnel move around watching the fight.
In one of the videos, an elderly man who was involved in throwing objects at the opponent group was taken down.
