A video of armed robbers operating in broad daylight in the streets of Benin City, Nigeria has gone viral on social media.

The footage, which was captured on a mobile phone, shows two men jumping out a car wielding guns as they approach and rob unsuspecting victims on a busy street.

The video has sparked widespread public outrage and calls for action to address the problem of daylight robbery in the city.

Daylight robbery, also known as “armed robbery”, is a serious problem in many parts of Nigeria, including Benin City.

This type of crime involves criminals who use weapons to steal from victims in public places, often during daylight hours.

The brazen nature of these crimes, as well as the fact that they often take place in heavily populated areas, makes them particularly shocking and distressing for witnesses and victims alike.

The video that has been shared on social media shows two young men, who appears to be in their late twenties or early thirties, one of them carrying AK 47 rifles, approaching individuals, in a very aggressive way.

The footage, which appears to be taken from a very busy road in the city, shows the men grabbing chains and wallets from their victims before getting back into the car.

The victims, many of them appeared to be shoppers or vendors and passerby, were left visibly shaken and frightened.

The reaction from the public and from officials to the video has been one of shock and concern.

Many have taken to social media to express their anger and frustration at the increasing problem of daylight robbery in the city.

Local authorities have yet to speak out on the issue. However, the high level of crime in the area, lack of jobs, poverty, lack of education, among other things, have made it a big issue.

What We Suggest

The issue of daylight robbery is one that requires a multifaceted approach to address. Measures such as increasing the number of police patrols in high-risk areas, improving surveillance and security systems, and promoting public education and awareness about crime prevention can all play a role in reducing the incidence of daylight robbery.

However, tackling the underlying socio-economic issues that may contribute to the problem, such as poverty and unemployment, is also crucial for long-term success.

It’s important for the government and other relevant stakeholders to work together to combat this problem and make the city safe for everyone. The video has served as a wake-up call for the community and the authorities to take action and put a stop to these brazen daylight robbery that put the citizens at risk.

It is important that citizens report any suspicious activity, it’s not just the responsibility of the police to keep them safe but also the community. Social media can be used as a tool for awareness and to gather information, however, it should not be used to incite violence or spreading false information.
