Tribal Riot In Lagos As Hausa Man Kills Yoruba Driver over N30

A tribal Riot erupted on Monday, January 31, on Mojeed street, Igando Lagos, when a 40-year-old Hausa trader, Ibrahim Adamu, allegedly killed a bus driver, Lekan Adeleke over N30.

Angry Residents and family of the deceased reportedly blocked the streets with bonfires and chased Hausa traders out of the area.

PUNCH reports that the trouble started when the deceased had bought noodles worth N230 from the suspect’s son on Sunday, January 29, around 10.30pm.

He was reported to have paid N200 and promised to pay the balance of N30 the following day, which did not go down well with the suspect’s son.

The son allegedly reported to his father, Adamu, who became angry and attacked the 30-year-old Adeleke with a spiked plank.

The victim reportedly slumped, hit his head against the concrete edge of a gutter in the area and died.

According to witnesses, the deceased actually paid the N30 to the suspect's son and was only joking about the whole issue.

This was confirmed by a friend of the victim, Kehinde Akinduro, who said “He was joking with the boy that despite being a customer, he went and reported him to his father. They started abusing each other. At this time, the son was already preparing noodles for me on the instruction of Adeleke.

“The next thing I saw was that Adamu, who was eavesdropping, brought out a spiked plank and hit Adeleke with it. I cautioned him, but he faced me and hit me in the leg. I sustained some injuries.

“When Adeleke saw that he could no longer handle the situation, he took to his heels. But the man followed him and hit him in the head as he tried to jump the gutter. He fell and hit his head against the edge of the gutter.

“When Adamu saw that he had become unconscious, he took him into his kiosk and poured water on his head. He was doing this when a large number of residents stormed the place. When he sighted them, he abandoned the man and took to his heels.”

Aggrieved residents in the area reportedly destroyed Adamu's shop while his son fled.
