#Lagosunrest trends as residents of Lagos take to the street defend themselves against robbers amid lockdown over Coronavirus (videos/photos)
#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.
