There is tension around Ajegunle in Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government Area of Lagos following the killing of a naval rating over the weekend.

Some gunmen had allegedly opened fire on the naval rating who was reportedly alone. The killing comes barely one year after a female officer was also reportedly murdered in the area.

Residents are apprehensive since colleagues of the deceased officer allegedly threatened to avenge his death. Reacting to the alleged threat, the Nigerian Navy has cautioned its officers in the area from avenging the death of their colleagues.
