The Lagos police denies any such news on social media about the attack on Igbos in Oshodi.

According to a statement signed by the State Police Command’s spokesperson, Chike Oti, the police has intensified patrols and surveillance to allay the fears of members of the public.

“Attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to the news on the internet to the effect that a group of boys popularly called the ‘Area boys’ is attacking Igbo traders at Oshodi, preventing them from opening their shops.

“The command wishes to debunk the rumor in its entirety as nothing could be further from the truth.

“Although the command received distress calls from concerned Nigerians whose apprehensions were understandably heightened by disturbing rumors emanating from some social media platforms.

“The command swiftly and massively deployed its personnel drawn from various units to Oshodi and environs to assuage the feelings of residents,’’ Mr. Oti said.

He further assured Lagos residents of its readiness to decisively deal with any person or group of persons who attempted to breach the public peace.
