Hoodlums waylay LAGBUS rob Passengers, conductor of their valuables

Hoodlums pretending to be passengers boarded a LAGBUS vehicle en route to Oshodi, Lagos State, from the Sango end of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway with other passengers. The bandit, who numbered about 30 jumped inside the vehicle and started dispossessing passengers of their valuables.

One of the gang members was said to be armed with a gun, while others wielded cutlasses, knives, sticks, among others.

The bus conductor, a lady, managed to escape after the robbers had collected the money on her. She was said to have alerted passersby to the robbery. Having seen that a mob was advancing towards the scene, it was gathered that the robbers took to their heels. The mob was said to have nabbed and beat up three of the suspects.

It was said to have taken the intervention of operatives of the Alagbado Police Division to rescue the suspects from the mob.

Police say that three suspects were in custody. The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed the incident.

“The suspects are with us while investigation continues. Efforts are being made to apprehend other members of the gang,” he added.
