“Recently, the suspected robbers broke a gas plant shop, carted away gas worth half a million Naira and attacked a proprietor of a private medical centre in the area with machetes,’’ Eyitayo said.
He appealed to the command to provide patrol vehicles for the police station at the airport, which also supervises the area.

He, however, said that the command would intensify its surveillance on the area to rid the area of bad eggs.
