Nigerian dancehall singer, Daddy Showkey who is known for his association with Ajegunle has called on the government to intervene in the ongoing spate of killings in the suburb. The vocal entertainer made the call via his Instagram page.
Showkey whose real name is John Asiemo posted a graphic photo of a badly massacred person adding that: “It is getting too much”.
According to him, the murdered young man was killed on July 9, 2017.
“The killings in Ajegunle are too much and no one is doing anything about it. Are we not in Lagos or are we not in Nigeria? Please do something to help us.
“We are trying to give Ajegunle a good name and some stupid idiots are busy killing our youths in Ajegunle. I am begging the Nigerian authority to come to the aid of the people of Ajegunle now before they will kill every growing youth in Ajegunle. This young man was killed 3 days ago on the 9th of July,2017. They will never stop us from doing what we are doing for Ajegunle” Showkey said.
Ajegunle is a neighbourhood located in the heart of Lagos, Lagos State, Nigeria. It is located in the Ajeromi-Ifelodun local government area of Lagos.
Ajegunle’s uniqueness lies in the fact that it is a concentration of all the many ethnic groups in Nigeria. It is bordered on the west by Apapa Wharf and Tincan, two of Nigeria’s biggest seaports through which over 70 percent of imported goods come into the country.
