27 July 2016, 12:07

Lagos -Three people were killed while two others were injured yesterday during a clash between Yoruba and Hausa at the White Sand area of Orile, Lagos State, Vanguard reports.

While some residents said that the clash, which left people scampering for safety, was between Hausa and Yoruba residents, others said it was between operatives of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and members of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC).

One of the residents said there was a clash between Yoruba and Hausa on Monday, which culminated in the Hausa leader inviting operatives of the NCS yesterday, to assist them in the escalating clash.

When the Customs officials according to New Telegraph stormed the community in three trucks, in uniform, they were confronted by members of the OPC in the community. There was an exchange of gun fire, leading to the death of the three people and the injuring of two persons.

The three dead were members of the community.

One of the injured is an official of the NCS, while the second is also a member of the community.
