There was tension as Personnel of the Lagos State Task Force clashed with some hoodlums on Tuesday at Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos State.
The face-off was believed to have spilled to the area where the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), is currently holding its orientation camp along old Ipaja-Agege road.
It was gathered that the men of the task force (security operatives), arrived the area to raid some erring motorcycle riders.
Unfortunately, this was met with resistance as some hoodlums known as area boys attacked the security operatives while their operation was on-going.
It was gathered that the task force squad who were almost overpowered by the hoodlums were said to have called for reinforcement.
The arrival of their colleagues led to a fight as the area boys began to hurl dangerous weapons at the security operatives.
Traders and commuters also ran for safety when the hoodlums were tear-gassed by the team of mobile policemen who arrived the scene.
Meanwhile, some of the hoodlums were also seen just a stone throw from the NYSC orientation camp.
The military personnel attached to the NYSC orientation camp were preventing them from causing commotion near the camp.
The soldiers were also seen beating up some of the area boys who were caught.
