What started as a minor clash between motorcyclists believed to be of Northern extraction and members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), at the Iyana-Iba area of Ojo, in Lagos State, on Monday morning, later degenerated into a tribal clash, as Hausa and Yoruba youths confronted themselves, wielding dangerous weapons.

According to an eyewitness, the crisis, begun when Hausa motorcyclists gathered themselves to protest constant harassment by the road union members, after an Hausa motorcyclist operator was allegedly beaten and stabbed to death.
