Attempts by hoodlums to cause violent uprising in Lagos over the cash scarcity were on Friday morning botched by sporadic gunshots from security operatives.
Miscreants at the early hours attacked commuters and motorists around the Mile 12- Ojota axis of the State.
It was gathered that parents taking their kids to schools and those going to work between 6am and 8am had to cancel their appointments as the hoodlums freely used dangerous weapons and took advantage of the chaos to rob victims.
They were said to have barricaded the roads, made bonfires with tires and vandalised vehicles that refused to detour.
In no time, news of their activities spread through social media with calls to security agencies to quell the unrest before it spread to other parts of the state.
