In a post shared on his social media page, Daddy Showkey said the killers are giving Ajegunle a bad name. “We are trying to give Ajegunle a good name and some stupid idiots are busy killing our youths in Ajegunle. I am begging the Nigerian authority to come to the aid of the people of Ajegunle now, before they will kill every growing youth in Ajegunle.”
He further said that “I am begging the Nigerian authorities once more to come to the aids of our budding Ajegunle youths before things get out of hand and we (would be forced) to take laws into our hands. Please I am begging with tears in my eyes.”
