The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the
Nigeria Police Command
arrested one Ademola Ibrahim who is a Danfo
driver for stealing the rails both under and above the Eko Bridge.

Ibrahim and one other suspect simply identified as Kampo
conspired to commit the crime on April 24, 2015.

The suspects were intercepted by the RRS team while attempting
to transport the bridge rails into a waiting bus.

Kampo took to his heels when he sighted the

The RRS operatives were reportedly acting
on reliable information that some miscreants were removing bridge rails used to protect the bridge on top and the ones used to hold the bridge under.

An anonymous RRS source revealed the
suspects have been carrying out the same act in other parts of
the state.

 “About three days ago, one of our patrol vehicles, RRS 153 went on routine patrol and when they were going,
they saw the suspect parking his Volkswagen
Paragon bus.

They suspected something fishy and they intercepted the
man and interrogated him on his mission in
the area. The suspect
(Ibrahim) told the RRS team that somebody called him to come and
carry a load for him and they conducted a search on the vehicle and found about 30 pieces of bridge rails.

bridge rails on the Eko Bridge in Ijora.

“When they questioned him as to how he
came about the rails, he said somebody contacted him to come and park the load for him and he identified the person and Kampo. In the process, they asked him about the whereabouts of the person and he responded that he ran away upon sighting the
patrol vehicle.

“Based on that, the patrol team now arrested him and brought him to our headquarters. We interrogated him and he told us the same story
that somebody asked him to park the load. But from our investigation when we
interrogated him further, we discovered that it was a conspiracy between him and the person that asked him to come and park the load. Our
investigation revealed that he has been doing
that for a long time particularly in other locations across the State.

“Their action is capable of making the bridge to
suddenly collapse because the rails are the irons that were used to tie the long bridge together and this
action is a serious crime
that could lead to massive death and destruction of properties.”

He disclosed that Ibrahim will be charged to court soon while the
other there is a manhunt to apprehend the other suspect. Rapid Response Squad (RRS), apprehends a

Ibrahim said he was living under the bridge in Iddo Terminus with
Kampo and that he asked him to help park some irons with his bus

He said: “Kampo told me that he has some irons somewhere and that I should help him park them.

He never told me he stole the irons and while we were parking the irons on the Ijora
Bridge, we just saw RRS patrol vehicle and he took to his heels upon seeing the policemen and I was
subsequently arrested.”
