Breaking! Bandits Kill Two Soldiers, Five Policemen in Ikorodu, Lagos State

Bandits on Sunday morning struck at Isawo, a community in Ikorodu, Lagos State, killing two soldiers and five policemen.

It was gathered that the security men were killed in an ambush by the militants in the area.
Residents have earlier raised the alarm over the return of the militants.

They said that many of the hoodlums had returned to Isawo and neighbouring communities, robbing and terrorising residents.

“The militants are back to Isawo area. They brandish guns openly during daytime and rob people at night; many residents are now living in fear.”

The militants, mostly kidnappers and pipeline vandals, were chased out of the area in August last year following bloody clashes in the community.

Scores of people were killed in 2016 during clashes between militants and residents of Isawo community, leading to the deployment of a joint military task force in the area.
