The crisis which broke out in the Gengere community of Mile 12 area of Lagos over alleged blasphemy of Prophet Mohammed, reared up again Thursday, resulting in the death of one Sadiq Oloyo.
Consequently, 48 suspects were reportedly arrested by the police in connection with the crisis, just as the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu directed that additional men be deployed to the area to restore normalcy and maintain 24 hours surveillance.
Oloyo was said to have been stabbed by one Aliyu Shuaibu during the crisis that broke out between some hoodlums at about 1am and he lost his life in the process.
As a result of the incident, our correspondent reliably gathered that some hoodlums on reprisal attack, went on rampage and caused commotion in the area. 
Following the development, additional policemen were deployed to the area and some operatives of the OP Mesa, leading to the arrest of the suspects.
The police public relations officer CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi confirmed the development in a release made available to journalists.
According to the release,  the Commissioner of Police  Hakeem Odumosu affirmed that the command and other security agencies will adopt 24 hour patrol and surveillance in the area until the culprits involved in the crises are brought to book and total law and order is restored in the entire area.
Odumosu warned that the command will not tolerate any act of violence and lawlessness in any part of the state, as all hands are on deck to suppress any criminal act within the ambit of the law. 

The release titled “AGAIN, POLICE ARREST 48 SUSPECTS OVER MILE 12 CRISIS, ADOPT 24 HOUR SURVEILLANCE” reads,
