Many commuters were stranded in Oshodi area of Lagos State as soldiers took over major places in the area to avenge the death of an officer of the Nigerian Air Force, who was allegedly mobbed to death by hoodlums.
Many vehicles, especially commercial buses have been destroyed, while some persons were assaulted by the aggrieved security operatives.
Some residents heading to work were trapped in the ensuing violence while students have fled back home.
Traders cleaning up their stores on the day of the weekly sanitation also fled just as some transporters abandoned their vehicles.
Soldiers targeting hoodlums are currently marching across the streets.
The situation has compounded the traffic woe in the cosmopolitan city as there is currently no movement in and out the part of Oshodi where the rampaging soldiers are.
