According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), between 4:30pm and 5:00om, suspected hoodlums drove crazily into the premises of the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos and disrupted the fun seekers who were there on Christmas day. People at the theater lost valuables like phones, money, cameras, etc to the hoodlums.

A witness at the venue, Mr Philip Patrick said:

“I came here with my siblings to spend the Christmas day. “We were having a picnic sort of, and all of a sudden, we saw people running in different directions; we also saw a `danfo’ bus move speedily around the complex.

“No one could really explain exactly what was happening but we had to run for safety first.’’
“There are also a lot of pickpockets around harassing fun seekers.

“One of them took my camera but returned it immediately when I saw his hand coming out from my pocket.

“I also saw the same man take items from other people,’’ Patrick said.

Mrs Anabel Gbenro, a teacher, gave her own account of what happened. She said:

“I have come here with my family to give them a tour of a historic place in our country. “The next thing we saw was people running to different directions. “It is annoying that hoodlums are roaming everywhere here taking items from innocent people who are trying to relax their nerves.

“The security should be tighter; the police should increase their surveillance,’’ Gbenro said.

Fortunately, the Police at the National Theatre Post were able to apprehend some of the suspected hoodlums.
