The management of Cheshire Home for the disabled and less privileged located in Ibadan, Oyo State has cried out over frequent attacks by suspected hoodlums.
Cheshire Home made it known that hoodlums keep invading the home to steal items donated by good samaritans and mindless defiling of some of their female children.
An Assistant Coordinator of the home, Mr. Kayode Lawal, made it known that four attackes were recorded in the space of five months.
“In the space of the past five months, thieves have broken into the home and assaulted residents on four occassions,” Lawal stated.
The coordinator particularly noted that the invasions and assault on residents usually occurred whenever groups and individuals visited the home to make donations, pointing out that the vulnerability of the home to invasions was not unconnected with the seeming isolation of the community and it being surrounded by bushes.
“We face challenge of insecurity. Hoodlums invade us. In fact, between April and May, we have had four robbery incidents. They came in to steal and also raped some of our girls. This is not fair. They should not be stealing from people like us who are disabled and less privileged,” Lawal added.
