After a day of rage across communities in Agege, Alimosho, Ejigbo and Oshodi areas of Lagos State yesterday, the president’s broadcast at 7 pm which extended the lockdown by two weeks, heightened tensions as robbery attacks spiked in the mainland communities of the state.
As the effect of the lockdown continues to bite harder on Lagos residents, armed robbers and miscreants have continued to unleash mayhem on Lagosians. Residents of Egbe Idimu Local Council Development Area in Lagos State were terrified on Easter Monday night over the presence of One Million Boys. It was gathered that the hoodlums identified as members of the ‘One Million Boys’ gang operated at the Aiko Junction of Ogunrombi-Orisumbare Road in Idimu Monday night where they looted shops and bungled some homes around the Paiko, Ogunrombi and its environs.
According to an eyewitness, one of the youths in the area was injured in the head while resisting the hoodlums. “The boys operated almost unhindered until some of the few brave youths in the area tried to deter the miscreants that came from Orisumbare to rob in Idimu,” he said.
