Many youths in Nigeria rely on daily wage to sustain themselves since unemployment in the country is high. With the lockdown in place, that has also been taken away. However, waking up to robberies and theft is what many are facing.

The robberies are often associated to street urchins, park boys and thugs that have had their source of living disrupted since the lockdown started.

“Majority of the robberies are those boys that carry luggage at the Park and their anger is that the government asked them to stay at home without giving them food or money,” Danny Walter tweeted.

Another user is now scared for his loved one after his girlfriend sent him a distress message telling him that her house is currently being raided. She has been unreachable since then.
