Nigerians can be said to have been in charge of thier own safety since the order of the lockdown, as they have had sleepless nights just to prevent their homes from being robbed.
One Twitter user shared his experience as a vigilante in Lagos, he made it known that he already quit vigilating as that night was his last due to the experience he had.
According to him, he and five other hefty men were securing their crib when one of them suggested they patrol which they all agreed to, after walking some certain miles, they spotted two bikes approaching them and before he could utter a word, the hefty men already disappeared.

Today is the last day I’m doing this vigilante thing.
So I & 5 hefty guys were securing the front of our crip. I had a shovel, they had cutlasses. One then suggested we patrol and we agreed.
Less than 100m walk, we saw two bikes accelerating towards us. Before I could say pim..
..all 5 of my men disappeared. The only thing I heard was “iyke run!”. It never crossed my mind that I was moving gallantly with ungallant men. I ran too
Fortunately, it was police. After a while, my men came out of their hideout, we gathered & started walking back to our domain
..we weren’t talking to each other. All of a sudden, one bursted out in laughter & every other person followed suit. We were laughing because we know we were useless. Just filling up the street.
I asked Chidi why he ran, he said “nwuye m muru nwa ofóru, and nwa m amatabeghi m”.
