Residents of three major area of Isolo, Lagos state, experienced a major robbery attack that left most of them terrified. They are now calling on the Lagos State Police Commissioner, RRS and other security arms of the state to investigate the matter and come to their rescue.
Read the story by a resident below...
''The residents of Alabe Street, Victoria Street and Bariyu Street, 3 major areas of Isolo went to bed on Monday 31st July as usual with no inkling of what was pending. Unlike other nights, this fateful day was going to leave a memory that would linger for long. At about 2 am robbers arrived in their neighborhood. These men with pump action riffles moved from house to house stripping cars of every gadget they could remove. From brain boxes to head lights and other car parts, they carted away everything they could lay their hands on.
The operation was professionally carried out as most residents did not know what was happening until the following day. A few resident who woke up during the ordeal testified that the criminals came in with fire arms and threatened to shoot anyone who attempted to hinder them. A middle-aged man said that he heard noises around his car and thought it was his neighbor, on coming out, he met two men with riffles and they ordered him back to his flat and told him to keep quiet if he wanted to live.
Other residents said they called the police numbers they had when they noticed strange movements, but as at 8 am this morning no police man had showed up. Not even the aswani police station, which is a stone throw from these resident had sent any officer to the aid of the residents during the raid. As a matter of fact, a street called Victoria Street, just 5 minute walk from aswani police station woke up to find their street security man tied head and foot. The robbers had tied him before descending on cars on the street."
Further enquiriy revealed that other areas close to these 3 streets had similar visitations recently and perhaps this robbers are moving gradually looting from area to area. If this trend is not checked, residents in other areas may become vulnerable.
The resident wish to appeal to the Lagos State Police Commissioner, RRS and other security arms of the state to investigate this matter and come to the rescue of those living in Isolo.
