Ray of hope that once shine on residence of Isawo and its adjoining environment in ikorodu with safety experience is now gradually entering into mirage, following the repeated cases of kidnaping and robbery by suspected militants. Those adjoining communities had hoped that after the military air and land raids in July 2016, and demolition of some shanties in the creeks, sanity would have been restored. Unknown to them, it becomes more aggressive than in the past.
Even though the military air and land raid was publicly announced as a huge success, one of the suspected militants identified as Bekewei, who witnessed the raid insists no single militant died during the attack. He also bragged that all their weapons were moved out of the creeks long before the bombardment started.
