The First Bank branch at Fagba along the Iju Road, Lagos, is currently on fire as hoodlums continue to wreck havoc in different parts of the state.
Fagba has been boiling for days now and the situation is heightened by increased battle between the Hausa community at the Oko Oba Abbatoir and the Yoruba communities in the area.
CyberReporters have been monitoring proceedings in Lagos since the EndSARS protests began, however the situation has escalated since Tuesday night when unknown gunmen shot at unarmed protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Angry youths as well as miscreants have continued to set properties ablaze across the state, with looting and chaos taking toll on economic activities.
Recall that the Lagos state government had placed a 24-hour curfew on the state, it has not yielded any result as the situation becomes worse.

Meanwhile, rampaging youths in Lagos State on Thursdays discovered a warehouse where COVID-19 palliatives were hidden.
The COVID-19 palliatives, reportedly meant for residents of Festac-Okota but were withheld in the warehouse.
In a viral video, the angry youths are seen looting the warehouse and carting away food items such as rice, beans, yams, and other food items.
In the course of this, four people are said to have died from stampede as people struggled to gain entrance into the warehouse.
However, it remains uncertain who may have hidden the palliatives believed to have been released by the government to cushion the effect of COVID-19 on the people.
The warehouse was one of the many places set ablaze by Lagos youths following the escalation of the End SARS crisis.
