FLASHPOINTS /HIDE OUT IN KUBWA.
Although there has been no reported bandit or terrorist attack in Kubwa, our investigation reveals that the following areas, are flash points in Kubwa. We call on security agencies, to seriously investigate and flush out hoodlums from these area.
1.Pipe line. This stretches from kubwa express through the back of NYSC through Kubwa village to Byazhin junction. Small cult like skirmishes have been reported by residents of this area. The hottest part of this area, is Bazango and its extension
2.NYSC junction on the express to Guinness Junction. This is also part of Bazango. But immediately after old Road Safety office by the left, is a ghetto, unplanned and harbors area boys who terrorize neighbors in and around that area up to Jewel Primary School-Zenith Bank junction.
3.Okada toll collectors. This has no fixed address but lurk around major junctions on Arab road. They are young fierce looking enforcers and collectors of ticket money from Okada riders. They are armed with locally made weapons.
4.Bank of railway track beside old Daughters of Charity Hotel. This is a safe heaven for scavengers but of recent, residents of Court of Appeal quarters and other estates have been complaining of influx of strange faces. There is heavy smell of hard drugs fill the ear every evening and early in the morning.
