Hoodlums reportedly enforcing a court judgment have been clashing with their counterparts in the Magodo Isheri area of Lagos State.
Bellnewsonline.com gathered that during the clash, the hoodlums, who were armed with weapons, engaged themselves in a free for all, creating tension that sent shivers down the spines of landlords, residents and business owners operating in the community.
A resident, who does not want his name mentioned for security reasons, said people had been trapped in their houses due to the breakdown of law and order by people claiming that they possessed a court judgment that granted them ownership of land in the community.
“As I speak with you, a lot of people are trapped in their houses; they cannot go out because the estate gate is locked. The people claiming that they have a court judgment are fighting. It is a serious clash and the police and men of the Rapid Response Squad have been mobilised to control the situation,” the source said.
