Lagos - About 100 people were injured and over 50 vehicles damaged on Monday during a clash between hoodlums in Lafiaji and policemen from the Lion Building Division in Lagos.
Monday’s clash was an extension of the Saturday supremacy fight between two rivalry groups in the area.
Trouble started on Saturday after a politician allegedly gave out money in the area but was not equally shared among the groups.
