Ogun state residents can’t sleep with their 2 eyes closed anymore, something has to be done, a personal robbery experience will always result to a PTSD

Like Falz said "it's only in Nigeria that police stations close by 6pm". Various robberies activities have been going on in Ogun state but nothing has been done to secure these people's life. One time you'd be worried about corona virus the other minute it's robbery.#OgunUnrest

Ogun state people will spend half of their day sleeping the sleep they lost overnight and the rest of their day sleeping the one they are scared that they will miss tonight.
We need security.#OgunUnrest
