Mile 12 unrest under control, free movement restored -Lagos police


The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, has confirmed that the initial unrest that broke out at the Mile 12 area of Lagos State is under control.


The state police PRO also confirmed that free movement has been restored to the area


 This morning, fighting erupted in some areas on the popular Lagos-Ikorodu expressway in Lagos State over the scarcity of the new naira notes and the hardship the policy has thrown Nigerians.


It was gathered that suspected louts in Mile 12, Ketu and Ojota areas on the expressway, took to the road attacking commuters and creating chaos.


A driver, attached to one of the cab-hailing firms operating in the state who does not want his name in print over fears of harassment, said he had to turn into one of the streets due to the chaos.


Tweeps, who shared details of the ongoing fighting in the area, alleged they could hear sounds of gunshots.


However, Hundeyin, who initially confirmed the unrest, has now said that sanity has been restored to the area, adding that men of the Lagos State Police Command are on the ground to ensure no further breakdown of law and order.


Making this known via his Twitter handle, he wrote, “Free movement of vehicles and people fully restored. Our officers and men are still on ground to prevent any breakdown of law and order.”


Hundeyon also retweeted a tweet from a Twitter user who confirmed that sanity has been restored to the area.


The tweet read, “Road is clear now, na there I pass now to Ikorodu.”
