The robbers carted away foodstuffs and according to a resident, they now operate with POS, clearing out the bank accounts of their victims.

Never been this scared. Everyone is outside vigilant, but the truth is if these boys invade, we have nothing to protect ourselves. #OgunUnrest – @ade_nas

“4 persons reportedly died today at ADIYAN due to the robberies going on (2 residents and 2 thieves).” The residents had to fight the robbers themselves!!! It’s not enough for the Police to pass with siren, they need to be deployed in those areas or more will die Police cars revolving light #OgunUnrest Majority of the robbers are those boys that carry luggages at the Park and their anger is that the government asked them to stay at home without giving them food or money. The Robbery Won’t stop @dabiodunMFR
until Armed Forces are deployed to those Areas!!! Police cars revolving light – @Danny_Walterr
