Fear was afoot on Monday at the Iyana-iba area of Lagos following the outbreak of violence between commercial motorcyclist and thugs.
TOS News learnt the clash was as a result of illegal taxation by the area boys which lead to the burning of tyres, destruction of properties and blockage of all access routes.
At the time of this report, it was not clear if there were casualties as the crisis was said to have degenerated into an ethnic clash.
Although residents claimed the roads were still blocked and fire still burning, the police command said normalcy had returned.
Police spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed there was an incident in the area, said it had been brought under control.
“Normalcy has been restored to Iyana Iba, Okokomaiko and the axis. We are on top of the situation. No ethnic colouration, he said.
He said everyone should continue with their business, adding that no cause for alarm.
