Man who robs motorists on Oshodi bridge meets his end
The traffic jam on Oshodi bridge has provided a thief an opportunity to rob motorists of their valuables.
The suspect who pretends to sell refreshments in the heavy Lagos traffic, was nabbed after robbing a woman named Mrs. Hadizatul Jiddah, who was thankful to the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences Enforcement Unit.
According to The Nation News, the agency helped recover items stolen by the roadside thief.
She confirmed that the thief made away with two phones and a bag while she was driving on the bridge.
Kayode was able to do this after breaking the window of her vehicle with a hammer.
“If not for the prompt intervention of personnel of the Lagos State Task Force, my bag and two phones would have gone,” Jiddah mentioned in a news report.
A picture of the suspect who was seen holding exhibits has been shared online.
Olayinka Egbeyemi, the chairman of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences Enforcement Unit, revealed that the case has received the attention of Lagos police commissioner, Imohimi Edgal, who has directed that the suspect be charged to court.
