Insecurity on the increase, Tin Can Waterfront community attack vessels

By Mitchelle Uzorka

Stakeholders have expressed concerns over attacks on vessels by hoodlums who reside in waterfront communities.

Grimaldi shipping line, a RoRo terminal operator, Port and Terminal Multiservice Limited (PTML) have accused the community of unleashing mayhem on vessels at berth and forcefully gaining entrance into terminals to cart away valuables.

In a meeting in Lagos with the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Maritime, Ibrahim Kaoje, He said most of the youths from the communities, especially Ogogoro village, loiter around the facilities to forcefully break into them to cart away items in the terminal and attack the vessels.

He, however, warned that if the security arrangement for the area continued to remain complacent, the outcome might be worse than the #END-SARS protests, which engulfed the nation in 2020.
