In another development, scores of people have been reported dead following a clash between soldiers and union members and traders at the Aguiyi Ironsi International Trade Centre, in the Paramo area of Ladipo Market, Lagos State.
The fracas ensued after a military officer and his orderly visited the market on Tuesday. They had previously purchased machine parts from a trader; and for some reason came back to change it.
Upon exiting some of the union members demanded a N200 payment for gate pass. The officers became infuriated and tension grew between both parties, and escalated into a fatal encounter. A source confirmed that the union members allegedly beat the military man and his orderly; adding that the soldiers mobilised three other personnel, who allegedly shot the victims to death.
The trader said, “What happened was that a military man came with his orderly in the morning to change a spare part that he bought from a trader in the market since last week. He came to change it because it did not work, but the military man did not wear his uniform when he came into the market.
“When he was leaving, the union boys at the entrance of the gate told him to pay N200 for gate pass. But because he refused to pay, it turned into a fight and the boys beat the military man and his orderly. So, he went back to his base, returned with three other boys and everywhere scattered as they started shooting.
