A dramatic standoff recently took place in residential part of Lagos when police officers stormed a neighbourhood to arrest or interrogate persons living in a compound.
In a video making the rounds online, the officers arrived at a compound but could not gain entry as two dogs stood guard at the gate.
The policemen who appeared to be 4 in number, parked their van at a distance while they stood watching as the dogs just watched them without barking.
About three of the officers were armed and there was a young man with them but it is not clear what his role is in connection with the policemen.
The man recording the video could be heard mocking them in the background as they were unsure of what to do.
