This great festival has been hijacked by street urchins(mostly non lagosians) who see it as an avenue to loot, beg and intimidate the populace. The also fought and maimed yesterday. I hope these anomalies will be corrected by the next festival.

You can imagine them calling it idolatary! It is not wrong if its halloween, but anything african is termed evil. A people who has lost their identity, language and culture can never evolve. We need to celebrate who we are and we are Africans.
