The Chairman of Fayemi Area Community Development Association, Chief Babatunde Yaya, has called on the Nigeria Police and the Ejigbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA) Chairman, Hon. Minsurudeen Oloyede (Obe) to build up security to curb rising wave of crime.
He explained that some hoodlums engaged in snatching bags and phones from the people at night and early hours of the morning on their way to work at the Fayemi Transformers Junction.
Yaya, who noted that the issue was once reported to the police, said the boys kept increasing when nothing has been done to checkmate them.
“The situation has made the people in the community to live in fear as many have fallen victims. The boys keep increasing on a daily basis and they stay at the junction day and night smoking.”
Similar criminal operation carried out along Idimu Road which links Fayemi community where the criminals attacked people with machetes on their way to work early in the morning or at night, snatching their phones was reported by ECHONEWS.
The CDA chairman therefore called on the council chairman to mobilise security agents to curb the criminal activities, advising that the boys should not only be arrested, but be orientated and engaged in legal community services, noting that many of them are out of school.
