Foreigners living in Nigeria have been assured of their safety after the attack on a Cameroonian and his Hungarian wife in Ikoyi, Lagos. The family was attacked on Sunday night at home in Ikoyi. The man was stabbed and he is in critical condition while his wife was killed.
The recent death of five inmates at the Ikoyi custodial centre has once again drawn attention to the state of Nigeria correctional centres and welfare of inmates. They were electrocuted, after an electric wire snapped and fell on a cell. The cell meant to accommodate 35 inmates, housed about 140 of them at the time of the incident.
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has frowned at those questioning what bullion vans were doing in his Bourdillon home in Ikoyi, Lagos State a day before the commencement of the 2019 general elections.
