For the past three days, residents of Ojo and Badagary local government areas have not slept following a recent letter purportedly written to the residents by the dreaded and ruthless robbery gang called One Million Boys in Lagos State, western Nigeria.

According to some residents, the letter was written to them following the arrest of four members of the gang after their recent operation in the area that left many residents injured, with many losing their valuables to the gang.

In what seemed to be a reprisal attack, the letter reportedly informed the residents of their coming and asked them to keep money for them or be prepared to die.

The threat has left the residents in fear and they have resorted to self help by keeping vigil.

When our reporter visited the area on Thursday, some residents, who confirmed the recent attacks and the threat letter sent by the gang, said they are afraid and had to mobilize themselves to be awake all night.

P.M.NEWS gathered that at least 100 members of the gang struck in the night recently.

Some of the areas attacked include Ojo, Iba, Shibiri, Agbara, Afromedia, Okokomaiko, Ijanikin and other areas located in Ojo and Badagry local government areas.

According to eyewitness account, during the recent raids, residents who did not have money or valuables to give to them were attacked with machetes.

The victims are in various hospitals receiving treatment.

P.M.NEWS also learnt that women were not spared, as some of them were raped and others were told to have sex with their blood relations.

However, while the atrocity was going on, some youths mobilized themselves and resisted their operation and in the process four suspects were apprehended and handed over to the police, while others escaped.

The arrested suspects were handed to the police at Ajangbadi division.

When our reporter went to Ajangbadi police division, the DPO was not around to confirm the arrest.

However, our reporter was reliably informed that the suspects were transferred to SCID, Panti, Yaba for interrogation.

At the SCID, Panti, our reporter confirmed that the suspects were there and that their case was handled by the IPO identified as Inspector Austin before the suspects were transferred to Zone 2 Command, Onikan where they were reportedly set free following directives.

    People should endeavor to give their children good upbringing We can not continue like this. This thing is rampant in western region.

  2. Judgement Day

    Imagine after causing havoc and psychological imbalance to the people, the said suspects were set free ‘following directives’> I hope the Inspector General of Police, Governor of Lagos State and President Buhari will look into this! How can the said suspects be set free by ‘order from above’? Buhari please set up a panel to look into this! This gang must be stopped!

    One million boys? God will continue to protect his own.

    Nigeria is a wonderful place where the police that are constitutionally given the power to protect the people against hoodlums are found to be actively supporting, aiding and abeting the hoodlums! Whoever gave the order is a criminal, but is it reasonable or legal for the police to obey an illegal order? Releasing criminals based on an illegal order is also a criminal act and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted. It is now that Nigerians will realize that finding a suitable replacement for that hardworking ex-IGP, Mohammed Abubakar wont be easy. He was unceremoniously retired by GEJ for unexplained reasons.

  15. justice

    This is wrong, really wrong. I fear for us staying here, aw do we trust this so called government of ours we voted for? How do we believe in the Justice system of our country and Lagos as a whole if this is happening. You tell us not to take laws into our hands,we don’t! We listen, yet you betray us. Fuck the stupid slogan of police is ur fucking frends! I’m disappointed, but again I’m not! They no More Dan collect 20 box frm people. This is wer discrimination coms in, had it bin it ws D brighter side of Lagos, the government ND the scrawny police officers wud ve ransacked their 0.0001kb brains for solution. But here ND now, we have given up on the government, u shud no, wen one person kills it’s murder wen the public does it is mass agitation, we no longer have respect for any law, whatever happens happens, enough is enough! Not until we are all wiped out b4 manna coms.

  16. this isn’t cool in any way.. they need to be apprehended before this turns to another thing

  17. Defiant

    Who knows the ‘Niggas wit attitude ( N.W.A)’ hit single that made waves and anchored as the pioneer of gangster rap in the early 80’s in the USA?.. They had a chant that goes thus.. F**k the police.. And in this case, all I got to say is .. “F**k the police.. F**k the govt.. F**k the one million boys”… Our help only comes from God, man has always been a failure to rely on.. God help us all.. Peace!
