We earlier reported of a suspected case of robbery in the Lekki area of Lagos state.
The report was taken from Twitter and the information seems to be incorrect.
Apparently we have been informed that the trending video, which originated from Twitter was a scene of a robbery that happened in Dawaki, Abuja, in February 2020.

This is an old video and a lie, as this ugly incidence happened at Dawaki, Abuja earlier this year. The robbers couldn’t get into the main house and they exchanged fire. Occupant is my colleague at work. https://t.co/qUaN4fbicC

Below is tweet that stated the former information
An estate in Lekki, armed robbery was happening, but they didn't know a senior police officer was visiting the same estate, he called back up, they killed 4 out of 5, the last one was under 20 years old, so they shot his leg and used him to lure out the rest of the gang pic.twitter.com/jnjc93Q0kt
