#Lagosunrest is on the top spot of the Nigerian Twitter trends, and it took the prominent position after residents of some communities in Lagos state took to the streets to defend themselves against robbers.
In the last few days, there’s been reports of robbers taking advantage of the lockdown order issued by President Buhari in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, to loot shops and also rob some households.
The reoccurring incident has pushed residents into becoming vigilantes, as they also accused the police of portraying a lackadaisical attitude in curbing the escalated crime rate in the state.
Here are some tweets and videos below;
Robbery Reports are coming in from, Alagbado, Agbado, ijaiye, Abule Egba, Agege, Ogba, Akute, Ota, Sango.
The residents turned to Vigilante, to secure the area. Are we on our own now?

To think two of these guys actually grew up in my area and my mama could recognize them.
These boys are not even up to 18, all living with their parents.
