No fewer than 500 men of the Nigerian Army has been deployed to the suburb area of Lagos where the said militants are maiming and killing people.
The soldiers were deployed after renewed violence in Ikorodu, Lagos.
Ilara in Ogijo, a community in Ikorodu area of Lagos State, is boiling as we speak.
Neighbouring areas are also reportedly affected in the renewed mayhem being carried out by suspected militants from the nearby creeks.
‘The militants are killing people again,’ an Ogijo resident told www.thegazellenews.com around 5:38pm on Saturday.
‘I’m just coming in and I saw at least 500 soldiers moving into our environment. They first stopped at a police station. I saw them with my eyes. They were very many.’
