Yoruba and Hausa fight in Mile 12, Lagos- See Photos



all started on Tuesday after a commercial bike rider who was an Hausa-man refused to take a woman who he knocked down.  People told him to take her to hospital but he insisted that the association who collects money from them should take her to the hospital. 

There was heated argument, which led to a fight.

The fighting continued all through Wednesday till Thursday when some thugs, believed to be of Yoruba origin, invaded the market and started attacking the Hausas.

Seven vehicles where burnt and 3 deaths being recorded.

At the moment, Governor Ambode has shut down mile 12 until peace is restored.
