There was pandemonium at the Lekki area of Lagos Thursday evening as a band of bandits
stormed a branch of the FCMB on the Admiralty Way in Lekki Phase One Estate in Lagos.

The bandits reportedly dressed in military uniform killed one of the bank guards and made an escape, with a speedboat, via the nearby Lagoon.

They shot in the air, sporadically as they ran away with their loot, causing stampede by motorists. Many people were said to have abandoned their cars on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link bridge, in the ensuing panic.

    Did Lagos not host the PDP election rigging crew recently? and have all sort of hoodlums & trained snippers as mentioned by OBJ not been coming to Lagos to welcome President Jonathan – who have been distributing hard currencies? How many people can escape in a boat ? How many ex-militants have been operating with boats? All Lagosians should step up intelligence and nip this in the bud quickly…when PDP boats they would win in Lagos, expect some fireworks and I am sorry folks do not be naive. Lagos may see some more fireworks before things calm down – be prepared and do the needful.

    And when Gani Adams have been promised he would also get a contract similar to the ex-militant as we read in the newspapers and be added to the Jonathan-oil-cartel, and he has said South West will vote for Jonathan you don’t expect fireworks? And to follow this up – Koro is now going to be a minister again?

    Lagosians from the Governor to all private security company – do the needful and do what it takes to secure Lagos, please!! May God protect us all.
