A Wednesday clash between traders and Area Boys at Alaba Market, Lagos has reportedly led to the death of one person.
Reports say the clash, which began in the early hours of Wednesday, resulted in the closure of the market as traders refused to open.
Why Traders And Area Boys Clashed In Lagos
According to information, the area boys in the early hours of the day decided to fight back following the move by the Lagos State Government to clear the roads around the market of illegal loading by commercial buses and traders displaying their ways illegally.
This took place on Tuesday when a task force cleared the area.
According to some reports, the area boys decided to fight back in the early hours of Wednesday to restore their livelihood, which they earn from collecting money from the commercial bus drivers.
Other unconfirmed reports claim the traders are against the unnecessary demand of money by the area boys also known as Agberos in the area.
This is a developing story. More details will be added soon.
Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily reported that Igbo traders were attacked and stopped by hoodlums from getting their PVCs in Lagos.
