Veteran Nigerian musician, Daddy Showkey, has taken to his Instagram to cry out for help as he shares photos of a man who was killed by some unknown persons on the 9th of July.

The singer, who shared the graphic photos in the early hours of today, cry out over the increasing rate of murder in Ajegunle, a densely populated and inner-city area in Lagos state.

My opinion: The Local Government should do something about the security of those who live in Ajegunle, they are human beings like the people that live in Victoria Island, Surulere, Maryland, Ikoyi and other secured neighbourhoods in Lagos.

The problem with Ajegunle is that it has always been associated with petty crimes but it seems it has escalated to a different level and it appears subsequent Lagos State Government ignore Ajegunle for no reason.

Is the Lagos State Governor and the local councillor only collecting their salaries without doing anything to secure the lives of the people that voted for them?
