The clash between the Onala boys and Okepopo boys, which happened recently – saw thugs armed with cutlasses, guns and other weapons battle each other in the street, thereby causing fear and tension among the residents.
Multiple trending videos which were posted online, show the thugs fight each other with weapons and even shooting in broad daylight.
Report has it that despite the presence of police stations in the area especially the central police station located at Adeniji street, the area boys fight each other consistently with the security men doing little or nothing to stop the crisis. The residents are calling on the state government to find a way to stop the re-occurring clash.
Some time ago, two people were killed and many others injured as suspected hoodlums from the Okepopo area of Lagos Island in Lagos State went on rampage to avenge an earlier attack on one of them from their counterparts from Onola.
One of the deceased persons, Small Shakiru, was killed around Agarawu on Monday night, while another unidentified person was also macheted to death by the rampaging Okepopo Boys.
The hoodlums also reportedly took advantage of the pandemonium created by their activities to rob unsuspecting residents and loot shops around Onola, Hafiner and Andrew.
