The festive season is fast approaching and lots of criminal activities are going on everywhere. I don't know what it's like in your environment, it is getting tough here in my part of Lagos.
Due to the Nigeria Police issues we had in October, they don't seem to bother about people's safety anymore and this has made people wake up to security matters.
It is always a regular thing we see at the end of every year but it might get worse without a response from the police to some of these crimes we experience just because the festive season is here.
Due to some duties at hand, I leave my home as early as 5 am -5:30 am but I can't lately due to security matters. There have been two heavy robberies in 11 days, there was no loss of lives but they went away with property worth millions. These guys break into stores and cart away with goods.
This morning, another one was caught because he couldn't catch up with his mate who left with the stuff they stole, and hopefully, he can lead us to the rest of the gang members. They broke into a boutique and didn't leave a pin, the Landlord got to know and came out in large numbers to catch them but only one was apprehended.
The rate of this will not reduce because there are people who have been lazy throughout the year but they want to spend large during the festive period, they will go at any length just to get this money.
I beg and urge everyone to be very careful as we go out and come in daily, always remember to commit our journey to the hands of almighty God because he is the greatest protector.
