The ugly incident of the hijack of the#ENDSARS protest by hoodlums in Lagos has dealt an alarming blow on the security fabric in the state as criminally minded individuals continue to cash in on the lax to feast on residents resulting in palpable fears amongst residents across the state.
It is evidently clear to all discerning citizens now that, our collective safety and security has been mortgaged by the ill intended actions of bad elements amongst us that pretended to mean well protesting, knowing full well, they had a pre meditated end in mind; one of such script was to pitch the public against hardworking agencies of the state responsible for the appreciable peace we have been enjoying.
The Lagos state task force men today, led by the chairman CSP Saheed Olayinka Egbeyemi, foiled a potential carnage in AGEGE, as hoodlums and gangstars unleashed mayhem, attacking people with cudgels, matchets and cutlasses with eyewitness confirming gunshots were also been fired by the criminals.
The swift response by the task force operatives deflated the momentum as the criminals bowed to the superior tact of the task force men, abandoning the corpse of their fallen member and scampering into oblivion.
It is increasingly becoming incumbent upon Lagosians to embrace reality as it stares us in the face in the current circumstances; it is very necessary now that, citizens join hands with the security operatives to restore normalcy fully as criminals look evidently ready to take over the public space, cashing on the gaps created by the unfortunate incidence of misdirected attacks on the police
