•Governor Sanwo-Olu


Two distressed communities, Gberigbe and Ewu-Owa, both in Ikorodu, Lagos, have cried out for the immediate intervention of the State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Residents of both communities have reportedly been living in terror and trembling for over two years, as a result of criminal elements sneaking into the communities and robbing them at will.

The armed criminals have become so daring that they occasionally arrive with POS machines to forcefully take money from hapless residents.

Ominira Estate, Ewu-Owa, Ikorodu, is one of the communities most challenged by the situation. The community shares a border with the Ijede community and is located right before Imota. Vandalism, theft, and brutal invasion of the community have become common. However, the CDA Chairman, Mr. Remi Idowu, has assured worried residents of his belief in the commitment of the Government of Lagos State to come to their rescue.

“I am appealing to our dynamic and listening Governor, His Excellency Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to urgently come to our rescue and save us from the menace of these criminals,” Idowu said.  

He urged his fellow community residents to exercise patience while they expect the intervention of the State Government.
