A lot of people believe that the lockdown is to be blamed for these robberies, but some people strongly disagree.
So many people are getting their facts wrong ,you see this guys going around to rob where actually jobless frm day1 even bfor lockdown,they are d guys u see in slums,ghetto,buspark &co,they are just using d lockdown as a reason to perpetuate their evil act #LagosUnrest
