Following incessant armed robbery cases in the area, residents of Papa-Ajao in Mushin Local Government Area of Lagos State, have called on the stateÂ government and police authority to beef up security around there.
They said the call became necessary as the armed robbers have always invaded the area, thereby causing them sleepless nights.
Some of the residents that spoke with Lagos Bulletin under condition of anonymity said armed gunmen usually storm the area between 12 midnight and 4 a.m.Â almost on daily basis, unleashing terror on them, adding, this has been on for over two months now.
â€œThe situation here in terms of security is terrible as there is no day that we donâ€™t record armed robbery attacks.
â€œWe area appealing to the state government and the police authority to help us by improving security situation here and save us from these robbers,â€ aÂ resident pleaded.
According to another resident, â€œwe live in fear everyday just because of incessant armed robbery cases for about two or three months now.
â€œWe are appealing to police authority in the state to deploy more of his men to our area because their presence would scare away armed robbers and we canÂ live in peace once again.â€
