Residents Flee as Monkeys Invade Lagos Community

NIGERIA-Lagos- Invasion by monkeys from natural habitat is forcing many residents of Soluyi/Sosanya Community in Gbagada, Lagos State, to flee. 


Some of the residents told Newsmen in Lagos on Monday that they could no longer withstand the situation. 

They called on the state government to save the community
from the trouble, saying the animals forced their ways into their rooms, destroying window and door nets, food stuffs and other items. The Chairman of the community’s Landlord Association, Mr. Adigun Olaleye, said it had become difficult for the community to curtail the monkeys and their destructive attitude. 

He said that the invasion might have resulted from the nearness of the community to a swamp forest that separated the community from Ifako area. 

According to him, the monkeys come into residences at any time including early morning and gain entrance into rooms even if the houses are locked. Olalaye told newsmen that the community had written a letter to the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture as regards the situation but had yet to get a relief. “They said we would have to pay for them to come and pack the monkeys,” he said.
