On Monday, angry youths in Oworo and Bariga areas of Lagos state have resisted the purported attacks by a gang of armed robbers known as One Million Boys.
In a viral video trending across social media, the youths in the different communities in the axis came together to repel the attacks from the dreaded gang.
The criminal gang had written letters to Lagos communities including the two downtown areas. In the letters, the group threatened to carry out armed robbery attacks in some listed neighbourhoods.
Although the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Hakeem Odumosu, had urged residents in the state to disregard letters addressed to their communities, there have been reports of robberies in some parts of the state.
