Residents of Soluyi/Sosanya Community in Gbagada area of Lagos State, have fled their homes following the invasion of monkeys in the community.
The community has called on the government to help them as they could no longer live in their homes as the monkeys force their way into homes by destroying protective window and door nets and destroying foodstuffs and other items in their houses.
The monkeys come from their natural habitat in a forest close to the community which is located close to a swamp forest.
The residents say they have tried several ways to curtail the menace to no avail.They claim to have even poisoned food items for the monkeys to eat but the monkeys are always very smart to detect.
They called on the state government to come to their rescue as some landlords have already started selling their houses and relocating.
