ESTATE RAISED ALARM AFTER COUPLE WALKED NAKED,ATTEMPTED SUICIDE IN VGC,LAGOS.
On Saturday June 11 2022 at about 20:25hrs,the Security Unit received a distress call concerning two young persons (male and female) seen roaming naked on the streets of VGC.
The Security Team escorted them to their residence in order not to escalate the issue.The Management Team,together with the Chairman and Vice Chairperson of VGCPORA were called to the scene.
After entering their premises,they proceeded to slit their wrists behind locked doors.The team had to break into their apartment and found them in pools of their own blood.They had made a suicide pact and were found to be heavily on drugs.They were moved to a nearby hospital at about 00:45hrs for treatment.
TWO MAJOR TAKEAWAYS FROM THE INCIDENTS ARE:
1.Illegal subletting of properties.Those found roaming on the streets rented a BQ and the Owner failed to register with VGCPORA.
“We hereby reiterate that renting of BQs and use of properties as short let is illegal as it poises security threats to our community”.
2.Increase in abuse of hard drugs amongst youths.
VGCPORA has a long-standing commitment to provide a safe,drug free environment. Alcohol and drug misuse pose a threat to the health and safety of VGC and to the security of the community.
“We ask that you join hands with us to make VGC a drug free community. If you see something say something”.
