by Victor Ndubuisi

The Lagos State Police Command has released a statement on a brawl that happened on Thursday in Ojo local government after Alaba businessmen closed their stores to register for PVC.

The ruckus occurred when the whole Alaba decided to close down so that traders could register for their PVC, according to Benjamin Hundeyin, the state police command’s spokeswoman.

This resulted in a large throng at the registration site in Ojo Local Government, and to make matters worse, only one registration terminal was operational.

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. “
