Citizens lament robbery attacks in Agege, Egbeda, other Lagos suburbs (videos)
Residents of Egbeda, Iyana Ipaja, Ogba and Agege areas of Lagos have lamented the robbery attacks by some hoodlums during the lockdown.
Similar complaints have been made by residents of densely populated Akute, which falls in Ogun
Series of videos and photos have surfaced online showing the violence in Agege area .
The videos show large number of boys coming out to rob innocent citizens at night and in broad day.
Many suspects have been arrested.
The Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Kenneth Ebrimson has denied the reports.
He said his command was not aware of robberies in the state.
There's no justification whatsoever for robbery
Which one is "the government did not give them relieve funds "
The people they're robbing, did the government give them relieve funds?
Or you just want to be unfortunate? #AgegeUnrest

What happened were cult clashes among seven rival groups, he said.
Since the 2 weeks lockdown was announced in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja, relief items have been dispatched to some citizens while others are yet to get them.
Funny enough, it’s the residents who have been catching these thieves.
To the people of Egbeda, Iyana Ipaja, Ogba, Akute, Agege. You’re strong people and I pray you come out of this soon 🙏🏽#AgegeUnrest

So the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson just denied and claimed there was no robbery in Ogun State.
He is still speaking LIVE on Channels TV.

The Lockdown made them Rob – Blocked
Stop justifying robbery with your woke teks. If you feel so welcoming you can drop your address so when they come we’ll direct them to your house.

Our government is not helping, the people are not helping too. See people taking advantage of the lockdown to rob their fellow Nigerians.
Our problem in Nigeria is beyond the government, there is moral decadence and the people have lost their conscience.
