Mayhem was unleashed in Lagos as irate Yoruba youths attacked an Hausa community which left 3 Hausa traders dead.
Elombah.com gathered that the foundation for the clash was laid on Tuesday when an Hausa commercial bike rider a.k.a. Okada knocked down a woman.
The bike rider was told to take the woman to the hospital, but the rider and his colleagues refused.
They insisted that the motorbike association, which collects tolls from them, should take care of the woman.
A heated argument ensued which eventually led to a fight.
The fighting continued all through Wednesday till Thursday (today) when some thugs believed to be of Yoruba origin invaded the market and started attacking the Hausas.
They burnt several cars and killed three Hausa traders.
Meanwhile, the police is yet to make official statement over the fracas and the eventual massacre of the traders.
