Residents of Kotomola, in the Ojota New Garage area of Lagos, were thrown into panic as Yoruba and Hausa youths engaged in a bloody clash on Thursday.

Eyewitnesses claimed several people were killed during the clash but Newsmakers could not confirm this from the Police.

It was gathered that the clash was fiercest at Gida Panli street, an area largely populated by Hausas.

The exact reason for the clash could not be established but some residents told NewsmakersNG it started as an argument between a Hausa and Yoruba youth and quickly degenerated into a fight.

Sympathisers of the two combatants soon joined in, leading into a free-for-all.
