Niger Delta militants have again invaded Igando, Lagos. It was gathered that the militants stormed the Ewedogbo area around 4am, looting shops, breaking into people’s houses to wreck havoc and shooting into the air.
Members of the Nigeria Police Force are now locked in a gun battle with them. The ongoing shootout, which has left three policemen injured, has caused residents to flee their homes or hide indoors.
An Armoured Personnel Carrier, APC, has been stationed in the area with residents on the road with security operatives.
