Police warns Lagosians living in isolated areas

Following the murder of four family members at Ibeshe, Ikorodu, at the weekend the Lagos State Police Command has warned Lagos residents against living in isolated and unsafe areas where they might be vulnerable to attacks by hoodlums according to the police spokesperson in Lagos, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole.

“A murder incident was reported during the early hours of Sunday, July 30 where police operatives of the Lagos State Command responded to a distress call at Oke Ota, Ibeshe, Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

“Mobilizing to the scene, police operatives found it extremely difficult to locate the house which was situated in a thick forest where it is remotely impossible for anybody to identify a dwelling house in the area.

“Eventually arriving at the scene on foot, the house is just a room and parlour with one open window and no visible form of security.

“There, a family of five was attacked and three died on the spot while one died while receiving treatment at the hospital.

According to him ‘’The last member is alive and responding to treatment,’’

He further called on the community leaders to identify people living in isolated areas and report to the police.
