According to tweets and posts of good-hearted Nigerians on social media, branches of two major commercial banks in Ogolonto and Ebute area of Ikorodu, namely Zenith Bank and First Bank, are presently under heavy robbery attack.
The tweets are directed at the general public to stay clear off those areas for safety reasons; and also to the Nigerian Police Force to rush down to the scenes of the robbery attacks to put an end to the ongoing attacks before they get really worse.
Luckily, the Nigerian Police Force has responded to the call and posted this message on social media
Our officers are responding to armed robbery at #Ogolonto, Ikorodu Lagos. Citizens are advised to stay off vicinity. #NPFalert #NPFtraffic
Recall that in May 2015, a 22-man robbery gang invaded the Lekki branch of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) killing about five persons.
