THIS is the chaotic moment music fans stormed into the O2 Arena, smashing down security scanners and pushing past guards.
A stampede of revellers pushed their way through the security gates in the hectic scenes as they stormed in to watch headline singer Wizkid.
Les fonctionnaires ont confirmé que “a number of fans” were able to enter into the venue – whether they had a ticket or not.
Dramatic scenes showed dozens of people pushing through the lines and storming into the venue as bamboozled security guards attempted to push back.
Skirmishes could be seen breaking out as O2 workers tried to stop the fans piling into the music concert to watch Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” visiter.
But before long, the frantic crowds knocked over the airport-type security scanners as they barged into the venue.
The arena – which holds up to 20,000 gens – confirmed that they are reviewing their security procedures following the breach.
And they advised fans coming to Wizkid’s second and third shows this week to arrive early for security checks.

“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 were quick to criticise the crowds at the London concert, avec un dicton: “This is sickening.”
Un autre ajouté: “After Astroworld? People don’t have shame or value their safety.”
Un troisième a dit: “This is disgraceful. You lot don’t learn.
“Unfair to those working the event, the artist and those who paid.”
The chaotic concert scenes come just weeks after the Astroworld tragedy in the US.
At least ten people are dead and hundreds are said to be injured following a crush at the opening night of rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival.
The crowd is said to have surged towards the stage while Scott was performing at the third annual Astroworld music festival at NRG Park in Houston on Friday, novembre 5, 2021.
Une foule de 50,000 s'est présenté à l'événement de deux jours, which sold out within an hour of tickets going live in May 2021.
Des responsables du Texas ont déclaré que la foule avait commencé à “compresser vers le devant de la scène” vers 21h15, déclencher la panique.
ils ont transporté 17 personnes aux hôpitaux avec 11 d'entre eux en arrêt cardiaque.
It is feared hundreds more were injured, including children as young as 10.
In a message released on Twitter, Travis Scott expressed how devastated he was by what took place at his festival.
He assured fans that he is “praying for the families and everyone impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival”.
He is working with the Houston Police Department while an investigation is pending.
