Thousands of fans on Sunday stormed the O2 Arena to attend the ‘Made In Lagos’ Concert of Nigerian Born Singer Ayodeji ‘Wizkid’ Balogun.
Fans from all across the globe forced their way through the security gates to watch the first sold out concert.
The O2 said they are reviewing their security procedures and advised fans coming to shows this week to arrive early for security checks, Daily Mail reports.
Venue officials said ‘a number of fans’ entered the venue, regardless of whether or not they had a ticket for Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos’ tour.
Footage posted to social media showed dozens of young people pushing through the lines and storming into the O2 as security guards attempted to push back.
The crowds then knocked over the airport-type security scanners as they barged into the venue. In another video, a woman appears to push a venue security worker after he grabs another member of the public.
An O2 Arena spokesman said: ‘This evening, a breach of the security cordon on the arena entrance occurred and as a result, a number of fans in the queue were able to enter the venue.
‘The situation was quickly contained by staff and the incident resolved.
‘The venue is reviewing security procedures for the remaining shows this week and advises fans to arrive early for security checks tomorrow night and again on Wednesday.’
Social media users called the scenes ‘sickening’ and ‘disgraceful’, while another added: ‘After Astroworld? People don’t have shame or value their safety.’
It comes three weeks after 10 people were killed, and dozens more injured, on the first night of Travis Scott’s two-day Astroworld festival in Houston.
