This comes three weeks after some youths and hoodlums clashed in the Ile-Epo, Abule Egba area of Lagos State.

The hoodlums, in the process, set some stalls crammed with goods on fire. However, the Lagos police after dousing the tension arrested over 50 suspects.

In a statement, police spokesperson in the state, Benjamin Hundeyin said;

Over fifty suspects have so far been arrested while the shanties they occupied have been destroyed, effectively dislodging them.
