A viral video, taken by a Lagosian, shows rival groups of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, clashing in a mass brawl on the street of Obalende.
It is not known what initially sparked the altercation in the middle of Lagos Road in Africa’s largest city however the men are believed to be from rival NURTW gangs also known as Defenders Of Lagos.
In the footage, hundreds of citizens can be seen running around as the thugs battle each other.
