      You can give OPC or Bakassi Boys uniforms and call them “state police”, they’ll still be ethinc area boys…

      And next election the governor will lose out, but a situation where state governors aren’t responsible for security is unsustainable in a country like Nigeria.

    Someone I know just died as a result of this robbery attack. She died as she arrived at Alimosho General Hospital. where she works. it so sad because she just gave birth. Gov Ambode pls whats going on. Instead of chasing after Fashola sit down and improve on his legacies HABA. To many thing happening, is it the traffic situation, area boys, the spate of armed robbery attacks and insecurity in the state. Please wake up and do some proper work.

      Sorry about the loss Yeemmy..
      Ambode is really SLEEPING. Since he became governor the state has been at a standstill.

    I was chased by armed robbers from this access bank last week Monday and I was shot in the leg while driving to escape from the robbers. Yet police didn’t deem it fit to secure the area. It is really sad to see this happen so soon. We are under siege in festac no doubt and the police are not showing any seriousness about this development.
