Nigerians woke up on Wednesday to a disturbing video dubbed #SecureIkoyi which suggested that the affluent area of Ikoyi, Lagos has been infiltrated by poor Nigerians.
A voice said in the video that Turnbull-Onikoyi Road and Banana Island Road residents are “hit with a stark reality. They live in a ghetto. They are now overrun with street hustlers, squatters, unregistered taxis yelling out destinations. It’s basically a scene usually found at overcrowded bus stops reminiscent of Ajegunle,” the male voice said.
It continued that there are multiple food sellers, barber shops, thugs and gambling stations at every turn. “No one knows who these trespassers are. Where they came from or what their mission is?” it added.
