#EGISTZ Robbers raid 8 Lagos streets, rape, destroy 30 cars in 7-hr rampage #TEAMJIZZY (SHARE)

According to a report by Punch,
armed robbers numbering about 60
stormed 8 different streets in the
Mushin area of Lagos in the early
hours of Monday morning and
operated unchallenged for about 7
hours. The armed men robbed,
raped some girls and destroyed
several cars during the operation.
Full report below…
The hoodlums, who reportedly
belonged to two cult groups –
Akala boys and Toheeb’s gang –
ravaged New Balogun, Euba,
Ayonuga, Tiamiyu, Haruna, Ereko,
Oyedele streets and Coker Lane.
A mosque on Coker Lane was not
spared as the worshippers, who
slept in the mosque after a vigil,
were robbed by the hoodlums.
One of the people in the mosque
told Punch that the robbers fired
bullets for over one hour before
robbing from house-to-house.

He said, “It was around 12am on
Monday morning that we started
hearing gunshots. It lasted for
about an hour. Around 1am, they
started going from house-to-house,
robbing the occupants. They stole
about seven laptops from the house
opposite this mosque. They stole
phones, money and everything they
saw. They came inside the mosque
and took our phones and money.
People were crying throughout the
night. It was terrible.”
Another witness said the robbers
were not in a haste. He said they
robbed till 5am and came back at
6am to continue before leaving
around 7am.
A Punch correspondent observed
that a generator was also removed
from its shed by the robbers.
Vehicles parked on the streets
were vandalised by the robbers,
just as two Toyota Hilus van were
burnt.
A Punch correspondent counted 20
vehicles, but some residents said
about 10 damaged cars had been
taken away by their owners for
repairs.
Kasali Daramola, a driver who spoke
while fighting back tears, told our
correspondent he owned one of the
burnt vehicles.
He said, “This is the third time they
will do this to me. What have I done
to them? The first was a Lexus car
my younger brother bought for me,
which I was planning to sell to
acquire a commercial bus to take
care of my four kids and wife. I
sold the scrap for N30, 000. I used
the money I raised to get a bus and
I was paying for it by installment. I
have not finished the payment when
they destroyed it.”
Daramola said the men entered his
house and some of the ladies living
there were raped.
He said attempts to bring in the
police were abortive as they kept
saying they were on their way
without showing up.
A resident said, “For over five years
now this area has not known peace.
Will the police say they cannot do
anything about it? Around 7am that
policemen came here, they still saw
some of those robbers around, but
did not do anything. Why? I believe
the police know all the people
causing trouble here and if they
want to do something, it doesn’t
take them anything.”
Tosin Gbolahan, a resident, said a
policeman attached to Alakara
Police Station was with the
hoodlums on Monday morning.
He said the hoodlums took
advantage of a carnival that was
held the previous night on Ojo
Street to perpetrate the havoc.
The Police Public Relations Officer,
Lagos State Command, Ngozi
Braide, said she would call back, but
she had yet to do so as of press
time.
