Political Thugs Unleash Terror In Ajegunle, DestroyProperties Worth Millions in Lagos

Lagos--Political thugs weekend unleashed terror on residents of Ajegunle, a suburb of Lagos, destroying properties worth millions of naira during a political campaign.

The thugs, numbering over 300, allegedly invaded Ajegunle and its environs during a political declaration
campaign by a politician (names withheld) and a member Lagos State House of Assembly, who is angling to contest for the fifth term.

According to reports, the politician, who was accompanied by the thugs during the declaration, gave out bundles of N1000 notes in appreciation of their undiluted support towards his political ambition around Alao bus stop in Ojo road.

Trouble, it was learned, started when the sharing formula did not go well with some of the thugs as those from Campus in Adejiyan and Alaba streets took advantage of the situation to unleash terror on residents, using guns and axes to frighten residents.

They also looted shops and damaged parked vehicles.
Also seen were damaged vehicles, properties and shrapnels of broken bottles and shattered car windscreens which littered major streets as Jinadu, Apasa Safejo and Alao streets, while most shops
remained shut.

When contacted, the Layeni Divisional Police Officer, CSP Chijoke Ndu, was unavailable but Vanguard reliably gathered that the division arrested and charged to court over eight thugs allegedly caught with pistols.
