According to eyewitnesses, the incident began when a team of soldiers attempted to disarm the police taskforce, who were carrying out their duties in the area. The taskforce, however, refused to hand over their weapons, leading to a tense standoff between the two groups.
The situation quickly escalated, with both sides exchanging blows and using tear gas in an attempt to gain control of the situation.
The cause of the conflict is currently unknown, and it is unclear whether the soldiers were acting on orders or if the incident was a case of misunderstandings.
This is not the first time that the relationship between the Nigerian army and the police taskforce has been strained. In recent years, there have been several reported cases of clashes between the two groups, with some alleging that the soldiers were trying to undermine the authority of the police taskforce.
The incident has raised concerns about the state of security in Lagos and the country at large. It is crucial that the authorities investigate the matter and take appropriate action to ensure that such incidents do not occur in the future.
The public is urged to remain calm and avoid spreading rumors or misinformation about the incident.
