Hoodlums in shooting spree in Oshodi

Like a scene in a movie, sporadic gunshots rented the air for several minutes in Oshodi as hoodlums battled for supremacy on Thursday. Passers-by had to scamper for safety to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.

The mayhem, Newspeakonline learnt, began from Oshodi under bridge where the hoodlums got into disagreement over which faction will collect fees from commercial buses caused the mayhem.

Policemen from Mosafejo Division had hectic time as the thugs were unmoved by the several canisters of teargas shot to disperse them

It was gathered that the street urchins also engaged the police in a shootout just as motorists and pedestrians made a detour as the gun fire lasted.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Lagos, Kenneth Nwosu, while confirming the incident said that the police had put the situation under control.
