Lately there have been reports of robberies cases in neighbouring towns between Lagos State and Ogun state, which has led to OgunUnrest and LagosUnrest trending on social media platform Twitter, with citizens calling out for help.
However, following the unrest, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to ask for the whereabouts of Amotekun, a region security outfit that was flagged off by the six governors in the South Western part of Nigerians.
Some Nigerians stressed that if Amotekun is still in existence, its duty should also include tackling of robbery cases.
See some of the tweets on Twitter,

There is no better time for full deployment of Amotekun in the South West than now.
