Police Begin Manhunt For Oshodi Violence Perpetrators
Hoodlums had come to the venue of the primaries for councillors in Oshodi, Lagos State and scuttled the process.
The fracas which occurred on May 29 led to the death of the Chairman of the Motorcycle Riders Union in Lagos State, Mr Rasak Bello popularly known as Hamburger.
Normalcy has since returned to the place, but police spokesperson, Olarinde Famous-Cole, said investigation was on to arrest the perpetrators.
“Normalcy has returned to the place, no more violence, the place is now calm. We are working with those that have useful information on what led to the violence.
“Definitely, there will be eye witnesses, it is just that most of them don’t want to come out as they belong to same party.
“The police have commenced investigation to hunt down the perpetrators of the violence as the command will continue to maintain law and order in the state.
“One life was however lost while another person was injured”, Famous-Cole said.
Hamburger had gone to observe the primaries at the venue for Ladipo Sogunle ward when he was attacked.
After the winner was declared, some hoodlums invaded the venue in a bus. They allegedly came with guns and broken bottles.
They shot sporadically and went straight to where Hamburger and his friends were staying and shot into their midst.
