Fadeyi: Violence Breaks Out In Lagos Over NLC Strike (Photo)

Hoodlums have reportedly taken advantage of the confusion surrounding a proposed labour strike to unleash violence on Lagos residents.

Suspected hoodlums, Wednesday morning, created a blockade at the Fadeyi axis of the popular Ikorodu expressway.

It is not clear if the blockade was initially created by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) which says it would embark on an indefinite strike over the federal government’s decision to increase the pump price of petrol from N86.50 to N145.

Those going to work, Wednesday, said hoodlums were hurling stones and other dangerous objects at vehicles.

They were smashing windscreens thereby forcing buses, cars, and other vehicles from turning back from the axis.

They also were not sparing BRT buses. Twitter @eBubaY said almost got hurt trying to jump off a BRT buses.

Images from the scene looks like those from a war zone. The images also show that security personnel have taken control of Fadeyi to shut the violence down.
