One person was feared killed in Alaba area of Lagos State following a clash between traders at the Alaba International Market and the Area Boys.
It was gathered that the confrontation, which began in the early hours of Wednesday, led to the closure of the market as traders refused to open.
According to information made available to The Eagle Online, Area Boys in the early hours of the day decided to fight back following the move by the Lagos State Government to clear the roads around the market of illegal loading by commercial buses and traders displaying their ways illegally.
This took place on Tuesday when a task force cleared the area.
However, according to available information, the Area Boys decided to fight back in the early hours of Wednesday to restore their livelihood, which they earned from collecting money from the commercial bus drivers.
