  1. This is what will continue to happen in a country where people don’t respect other people’s right to live in peace! Anarchy and mayhem everywhere. There is similar situation in my neighborhood , i have personally gone to Alausa on this issue but yet these people continue to constitute nuisance in the community depriving people of the much need sleep and rest from the horrendous hustle and bustle of Lagos.It is only when we as a nation begin to have empathy for other people no matter their faith creed or tribe before we can begin to enjoy prosperity collectively as it i will transform our everyday lives. I have said it several times on this forum that the 2 main religions are the main protagonist in moving the country forward. i hope that one day people will live in peace and harmony for the sake our our nation.Do unto others as you will want them to do to you; it is so basic i find it hard that Nigerians are not able to understand this simple tenet of civilization. What a country what a people!
