Vehicles destroyed as youths with knives, machetes clash in Kwara state



A violent clash involving youths in Ilorin on Friday night resulted in the destruction of 15 vehicles within the Pakata, Sakale, and Ita Nmo communities.

According to a report by The Nation, the disturbing incident began when approximately 100 youths descended on the neighbourhood late Thursday night, armed with machetes, knives, and bottles.

They were heard shouting “Ole, Ole” (which translates to “thief” in English), indicating their intention to target alleged wrongdoers or criminals in the area.

As the group moved through the community, they allegedly focused their anger on parked vehicles, causing significant damage to at least 15 cars.

The exact motive behind the attack and the identities of those responsible remain unclear at this time.
