Hoodlums in the guise of protesters on Tuesday, blocked Ahmadu Bello Way, a popular commercial centre in Jos, destroying so many properties.
Ahmadu Bello Way is a popular area in Jos, as it is at the heart of the popular commercial area called ”Terminus.”
Sources who were at the scene of the crisis told SwitchNigeria that, the problem started when a group of youths barricaded Ahmadu Bello Way, blocking off traffic.
Since this was causing free flow of traffic in the city, another set of youths opposed the barricade and this led to the unrest.
As a result of this ,several cars were smashed, some burnt while some shops were also destroyed.
Offices of a popular eatery, Mr. Biggs and Jaiz Bank were among the structures damaged by the rampaging youth.
All businesses in the area closed abruptly to avert more destructions. Gunshots were heard in the area, forcing residents in the area to run from the scene.
The deployment of regular and mobile police officers to the area has helped in bringing normalcy to the city centre
