It Is Not About Igbos – Lagos Police Command Speaks On PVC Fight At Ojo

The Lagos State Police Command has spoken on the fight which occurred on Thursday at Ojo local government after Alaba traders shut down their shops to register for PVC.

Benjamin Hundeyin the spokesperson of the state police command said via a statement made on Facebook that the disturbance was because the entire Alaba decide to close down so that traders could register for their PVC.

This led to a crowd at the Ojo Local Government venue of the registration and to make matters worse only one registration terminal was working.

According to him: “First, this wasn’t about Igbos. These are the true facts behind the trending videos. The entire Alaba International Market decided to close the market today to enable the traders register for their PVCs. A phased closure would have been better. Consequently, the Ojo Local Government venue of the registration was besieged by a mammoth crowd. The situation was made worse by the fact that only one registration terminal was working. One of the people who came for registration made trouble and was challenged by those around.

Going by simple probability, the attacker or the attacked is very likely to be Igbo. They were simply large in number. However, giving this incident ethnic coloration would not help matters.

The entire episode lasted a few minutes. Sadly, recordings from those few minutes are still traveling far and wide. Normalcy has since returned and the Divisional Police Officer there is fully in charge of the security situation. “
