The main inhabitants of this area of Lagos are mainly illiterates, from humble back ground.

The major cause of domestic violence in Ajegunle is due to the high level of poverty. Families find it difficult eat, pay their children school fees; when the parents can no longer provide for their children, the children starts engaging themselves in illegal acts like stealing and other social vices. Some of the children end up becoming members of different cult groups; they begin to steal, kill to survive; when finally they are being apprehended by the police or killed by other cult groups, the whole fiasco will land on their families respectively.

On the 22nd April 2016 in Ajegunle; a father and three of his sons were killed by a group called one million boys.
