    This ambode is a joke! I hope this dosent become the hallmark of his legacy. He is more interested in receiving groups and hosting people than governing. Lagos iams need to wake up!

    i witnessed it ooo on my way to work this morning. my colleague and i just got there in his car when i saw some cars and a staff bus diverting towards ogudu/ibadan because of these rogues. this was about 6:17am and it was very bright. i saw two boys amongst others holding those kinds of knives that eleran (meat seller) uses to separate flesh from bone, they held it against their arms as if trying to hide it. one particular guy was dressed in jeans abi denim shorts and a black shirt. these guys were walking majestically oo. i saw shattered glass on the floor too and we also had to divert towards ogudu and turned under one kain bridge to joined the queue towards 3rd Mainland briefly. what is baffling is that there use to be a police patrol van at this spot bet alas, it wasn’t there on this today’s day!! it is more appalling that these guys are sooooo emboldened because they know that they can actually harass passengers and get away with it. if not for my mother’s long prayer this morning that even delayed me a bit sef, we (colleague & i) might just have been victims too. i’m feeling cold just typing this sef. Tis really bad!

      Aren’t you foolish? Is this the type of situation you come to demand grammar? May you never encounter the kind of danger that would make you forget how to spell your name…. Smh… Yeye dey smell!

      You are a big fool for saying that! Someone is typing out of fear and all you can see are errors!

      @soyinkar, take it wasy-I am sure majority of us read and enjoyed it exactly the way @Made wrote it. The point is, we understood clearly what he/she was trying to communicate. It is @Made’s style of writing and basically the way the gist would have been told if she was telling a friend a sweet gist.

    Yet people still say Fashola didn’t work… robbery and all this lawlessness was not as rampant as this during his time. Ambode needs to take action & stop parading everywhere.

      Love your response. People just out for trouble no matter what. If the jingo was so perfect with spelling then he/ she will start with correcting Soyinka/R. So petty,annoying people everywhere !
