30 vehicles burnt, scores injured as sex worker ignites clash

06 July 2012, 07:30

 Ogun - An argument over who the real customer of a misidentified sex worker is, has led to a clash between two communities in in Ibese, Yelwa Local Government Area of Ogun.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Ogun, Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the clash, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the crisis started when two men disagreed over who the true customer of the woman was.

A NAN correspondent who visited the area, reports that at least 30 articulated vehicles were still burning at the time of visit.

An eye witness told NAN that several persons who sustained injuries during the clash had been taken to undisclosed hospitals.

The source said that three persons also lost their lives in the crisis.

Adejobi,who denied that three persons died, said that the crisis escalated because it was not well managed by leaders in the area.

"The Commissioner of Police, Mr Ikemmefuna Okoye and other top members of the force had visited the area.

"As we speak, the area has been fortified with the deployment of more policemen.

"Residents of the area have nothing to worry about as we are on top of the situation," Adejobi, an assistant superintended of Police told NAN.

To forestall possible attack on Dangote Cement Factory located in the area, Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) was placed in front of the factory.
