The once annihilated Notorious gang, Awawa Boys are back in the Agege area of Lagos State after about 3 years of hibernation.
A few years ago, the cult group reigned terror in the area but they went underground after their inner circle was infiltrated and busted by officers of the Lagos State Police Command.
They are reportedly back in the town and terrorizing residents of the area.
Residents have taken to social media to call out for help:
‘at about 8:30pm yesterday, Awawa Boys numbering about 150+ unleashed terror along Dopemu Road, Agege. Commuters in traffic were robbed of their phones, wallets and cash. Some were beaten mercilessly’.
