Residents of Soluyi/Sosanya community in Gbagada, Lagos state have been forced out of their homes as monkeys invaded the community.
Some of the residents told NAN on Monday that they could no longer withstand the situation.
According to the residents, the monkeys forced their ways into their rooms destroying window and door nets, foodstuffs and other items.
Adigun Olaleye, chairman of the Community’s Landlord Association told NAN 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.
He said that the invasion had been on for years but recently became unbearable. Olaleye appealed to the state government to urgently intervene.
