Reports have it from PM that  the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) dragged five scavengers to a Lagos court for allegedly entering a refuse dump site at Igando, Lagos, illegally. They were remanded in prison after the arraignment.

There have been mix feelings from Nigerians at large on this report as everyone tend to wonder why those obviously feasting from spoils of others would be arrested for trying to survive on wastes.

  1. The Good Lord will deliver this Nation from wickedness & injustice. Those who steal in billions are free while those ‘scavenging’ end up in prisons. Lord have mercy!

  2. May God save us all, how on did the Lagos state govt expect dis scavengers to survive since dey don’t hv jobs and cannot allow demslves bcom d devil’s workshop. BRF pls don’t allow d love of money( revenue generation), lead ur govt into injustice or jungle justice.
    May God’s anger never fall on us. Amen

  3. These ppl r husslers y arrestin dem we d indigenious ppl in NIGERIA want tu kw y those six scavengin wia arrestd. B,cuz those who steal in million’s r free. Mitchewwww

  4. those pple in the picture are not scavengers, it’s either they used the wrong pix bcos the culprits there are six and not five, also scavengers do not wear white clothes or dress well when scavenging. These ones in nice clothes and shoes with arm bands and holding handsets are definitely not your typical scavengers, or they have another mission and that maybe why the authority is charging them to court. They should be investigated bcos they may be boko haram elements looking for where and what to use to perpetrate their nefarious acts.

  5. I dont think scavenging is the true reason behind this imprisonment. The truth has not been unfolded yet. They should please tell Nigerians the truth or else those men should be set free. This country is just too funny. How can scavenging lead some people to prison. I think those young men should be properly investigated to know if they are not all those boko haram bomb manufacturers agents. If they are truely mere scavengers, then they have no case. But if such a place has been out of bound for such activities, then the punishment is to heavy for such offence per say. I wonder the kind of judgement our judges pass in this country…so so funny, and useless people filled up the entire system…setting the corrupt politicians free and reprimanding the innocents…mtchewwwww.
