Kidnapping: Be Vigilant, Lekki Alerts Residents, Calls For Okada Ban by iwaeda: 9:56am On May 20
As the security situation in the country worsens with rising cases of kidnappings and killings, the Lekki Estates Residents and Stakeholders Association has alerted residents of the area to be vigilant as they go about their lawful activities.

LERSA, which is an association of “over 80 estates and communities” in the area, also urged the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to hasten his planned ban of all passenger motorcycles, especially within the Lekki axis.

This was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday and co-signed by Olorogun Emadoye and Gbemi Adelekan, President and Secretary General of the association respectively.

The statement directed to residents and stakeholders in the Lekki area was titled, ‘Re: Update On The State Of Security Affairs Across The Lekki Corridor’.

The statement read, “The Association has received various calls from residents expressing deep concern on the general insecurity in the Lekki axis.

“While acknowledging the efforts of the Police in trying to maintain peace and security, the Association is calling on the Government and the Security authorities for a broader and stern response to the activities of various criminals in the community and the State in general.

“In the light of the security challenges, we wish to commend the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on the planned ban of Okada in the state. We believe that such a policy, if effectively implemented will reduce insecurity to a reasonable extent.

“We also wish to call on the Nigeria Police to declare a total war on people roaming the streets with dangerous weapons to curb the indiscriminate activities of some criminals.

“The Association wishes to admonish residents to take extra precautions against kidnappings following news of deteriorating security in the country.”

LERSA, therefore, advised residents to:

“Be observant, watchful and ensure that you are not being followed. If you suspect strange movement, drive to the nearest Police Station.

“Keep the discussions of your financial dealings away from strangers especially while in public places or while talking on your mobile phones. Always keep a low profile.

“Keep vehicle doors locked and windows rolled up, especially in traffic jams or traffic lights.

“Do not use ATM Machine at remote locations at night to avoid robbers and kidnappers.

“Do not stop to help strangers on the road, especially at night unless you are sure.

“Exercise precaution when walking at night. Do not jog at night, if you can avoid it.

“Ensure that you report any security incident to the Police. Be a friend to the Police.”

The Association also said it would seek audience with the state government and the Lagos State Police Command to discuss the security challenges within the axis.

Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Muyiwa Adejobi, has said the Command would issue a statement on the latest happenings within Lekki.

Be armed. A small penknife in the right hands can cause a lot of damage. Don't stab. Slash.

I'm scared of the ban oooo. The last time they banned Okada thieves came to my house 4 times. They couldn't breach my security but the neighbours hear am. It was so bad they made every man come out at night to defend their homes. By eliminating a problem they create another. All those abokis where dem wan go. Aboki wey dem kuku be bokoharam sleeper cells before. God save us

Mynd44 I saw you now. This our area, I read what happened to a lady at Admiralty few days ago. I do not know why Lagos allow our peace to be troubled with the menace of okadas. Almost on daily basis, there is okada and cars accident in front of the RCCG church and that tall building as they want to cross one way. The LASTMA always hide behind the tall building, to extort vehicles taking one way, but once they leave it is free for all.

So kidnappers and armed robbers can also be your problems?
During endsars, you Lekki people tried to show the world that Nigeria Police is the number 1 problem of the country. Now you have seen that there is a way more bigger evil, so you realize you need the lesser evil. I heard the places where the police stations were burnt down in Lekki are now a haven for cultists and criminals as the police does not plan to build a station there anytime. Las las we go all dey alright. I hope Lagos state government rolls out their buses ASAP so Lagosians will not have to consider private vehicles kidnappers use.

Safety Tips
Please stop entering private vehicles doing transportation in that area especially Sienna vehicles.
If you are unsure of night movement, book uber or bolt.
If you are a lady going to work early morning or coming back late evenings, be a Liverpool fan. Never Walk Alone grin

No, I appreciate the police. Police presence is what reduces crime rate.
Where I am, the strong police is what keeps crime on the low low that's what makes people stroll about at 3am with no fear of anything.

Some policemen are armed robbers. Some are beasts in uniform because the police recruitment process is too weak to filter the bad eggs from the good ones. We hope the recruitment gets corrected ASAP. Pray never to fall into the hands of one chance. At least police answers to government, those ones answers to no one.

Most of those beggars grow up to become the neighborhood bag snatchers and muggers/robbers, because they feel relaxed in the area. Government must demolish all shanties, ensure all owners of properties lock it up, and eradicate these northern beggars from Lagos roads, and take them back to Northern states. Remove all urchins from Lekki.
