War in Lagos: Ilaje, Ajah indigenes poised for bloodbath


Ajah, the hotbed of communal crisis for years, may not have peace in days to come as Ilaje youths, who were brutally attacked on Wednesday by Ajah indigenes, have vowed to avenge the death of their people. The clash occurred on Wednesday after a disagreement over tolls at motor parks, as the two parties laid claim to control of the parks.

Ajah indigenes alleged that the Ilajes are settlers and as such have no right over toll collection in the area, adding that they could only be co-opted through the indigenes permission. The argument led to a face-off whereby dangerous weapons were used. As the dust settled down, three people from Ilaje and about 12 houses were burnt by Ajah indigenes. Sunday Sun, however, gathered authoritatively that Ilaje youths were not happy over the death of their brethren and have vowed to unleash reprisal attacks. Sources among Ilaje youths, who preferred anonymity, stated that unless adequate compensations were paid for those killed, Ajah would boil again anytime.

“We will avenge our people’s death. We are all Nigerians. They can be claiming that we are still settlers in a place we have lived for many years and contributed a lot to its development,” said one of the sources. To ward off possible reprisal attacks, it was gathered that several meetings have been held by the Ilaje youths and some elders.

While the elders were trying to calm frayed nerves, the youths were said to be spoiling for war and even seeking firepower to confront Ajah youths, who attacked them with all sorts of dangerous weapons, including guns. “We will fight back with anything,” said one of the youths. It was however, gathered that the traditional ruler of Ilaje community is making frantic efforts to avoid a reprisal attack, while police from divisions within the area are on standby to forestall possible breakdown of law and order. Meanwhile, it was gathered that Ajah youths are not taking anything for granted, as they are also mobilizing for possible attack.

They were said to be specifically angry over the fact that a traditional ruler of Ajah, Chief Muka Odugbese Abereoje, was arrested and taken to State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti. Spokesman of the family, Chief Fatai Ojulari, said the traditional chief was going to make peace when he was attacked by some Ilaje youths, but was later arrested by the police who claimed he was among instigators of the crisis. “We are writing a petition to that effect,” Ojulari said.

While the crisis was on, a traditional ruler, Chief Ojupon of Ajah, was attacked and only escaped death by the whiskers. Paramount ruler of Ajah, Olumegbon of Ajah, Fatai Lawal, is said to have travelled out of the country, but is in constant touch with home since the ugly development. “He is in touch with us since the incident happened,” said a source.

  3. Just because of toll collection they are killing them selves, i think govt should take over the so called toll collection because this has been going on for years, or are the AGBEROs now more powerful than the govt

  4. Yorubas will not stop kilin themself unles they wipe themselves out, yoruba kilin yoruba bcos of money, Fools, this issue hav been there for years and their elders can not setle it bcos of their greedines,

  5. @saka or what u call urself, desist from tribal name calling. Condem the people and their act without calling their tribe. If u are not married u could fall badly in love with any of their girls. Every tribe /culture got sth good. Ok. I understand u may not be happy with the way igbos are been abused, but dont be another guy by name “Concern” who always abuse igbos/biafra. Honestly i thought “Concern” is already dead until i read his usual comment against igbos. Many people has one time or the other, cursed him for his unnecessary hatred for ndi igbo. He shows a huge inferiority complex where igbos are. For the illajes, they should restrain their anger. Nothing is good in a war where innocent people are killed. Govt should quickly intervene.

  6. Saka u need ur brain examined. God of thunder will strike ur mouth off n ur generatioin to generation will never know peace in ur life. U bastard nigerian jews, we all know what u jews are made of when it comes to money, we all know u will sell ur mother ,children father for money. Onye ara.

  7. Kola amodu u must examine ur self to know whether if ur a nigerian or did u mix ur way to nig bcos i know ur from afganistan, so u shud mind ur self and stop pokin ur nose insid nig mata or thunder wil wipe out ur generation, you bastard nigeria afganistan, u beta stop inciting yorubas to kil themselfs,bcos u know yorubas are too greed then ur using it agaist them, yorubas are evil ppl i eva seen, betrayals, greedines and envines is their surnam, God wil punish kola amodu sherif the al qeda and boko halam leader Fools.

  8. It’s amazing how people sometimes loose their sense of reasoning! there is chronic poverty in the land and yet the people of Ajah and Ilaje busied themselves destroying the little properties they have, indeed the love of money is the root of all evil!!
