Lagos’ Most Dangerous Black Spots!

DESPITE the efforts of the Lagos State Police Command to ensure the state is crime free and its residents assured of safety of lives and property and can move freely without the fear of being molested or attacked by miscreants, the unrepentant hoodlums are not ready to quit their illicit trade. 
Instead, they keep terrorizing innocent people and causing more havoc in the state, therefore, constantly putting the law enforcement agents on their toes.

The factor of Lagos being a heterogeneous state is not helping matters as many people troop in from different states daily without any likelihood of any means of living or survival.  Such people, in the long or short run, turn criminals and create hideouts for their heinous activities.

ENCOMIUM Weekly’s research revealed some dark spots in Lagos, including Ajegunle, Apongbon Bridge, Bamboo area in Oworonsoki, AP area in Agege, Ile-Epo/Pleasure bus stop along Lagos-Abeokuta expressway, Ijora bus stop, Fadeyi-Onipanu bus stop, Berger bus stop, Onikan (in front of Muson Centre), Agboju/Mile 2 bridge, Cele bus stop along Lagos-Badagry Express road, Ketu bus stop, Ojota, Ojuelegba and many more. Most of the activities carried out by these hoodlums in all the aforementioned areas are similar.  Although, they may not be violent in their conduct, they quietly dispossess their victims of their belongings without passers-by noticing.
However, on some occasions, most of these notorious gangs are armed, and they use such to threaten motorists along any of these routes.  Aside collecting money, the items of their target include laptops, expensive phones, ATM cards and other valuables.
