One Feared Killed As Police Disperse Yoruba Nation Rally In Lagos

January 09, (THEWILL) – At least one person has been confirmed killed and several others injured during a rally held on Monday, in Lagos, by the Yoruba Nation agitators.

The spokesperson of the State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development.

While details of the violence remained sketchy, reports said the agitators came out to demand Yoruba Nation amongst others.

A confirmed police source hinted that shortly after the agitators took to the streets in Ojota, the men of the Lagos State Police Command came out in procession with a detachment of personnel from Rapid Response Squad, State Taskforce and conventional divisional officers.

Security operatives arrived at the scene and shot teargas to disperse the crowd, the source added.

A police van was reportedly burnt in the ensuing outrage.
