Chaos in Lagos as fuel crisis turns bloody

It was chaos in some parts of Lagos in the early hour on Thursday morning as motorists fight for fuel which turned bloody. 

The incident which occurred at a very popular filling station, along Oba Akran road, Ikeja, left two people wounded.

They were rushed to The Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for treatment. 

Although fuel is sold at N185 in the station, some motorists were said to have slept at the station overnight in anticipation of getting the product. 

Fight ensued when the station commenced dispensing fuel at around 6am as everyone wanted to be attended to.
