Motorists have cried out over resurgent cases of traffic robberies in Lagos State as hoodlums reportedly attack commuters at night and in broad daylight.

It was gathered that on some busy highways such as Ojota-Ketu-Mile 12 axis manned by police, miscreants loitering around pounce on motorists held in traffic and break their windscreens in an attempt to rob them.

In some cases, the thugs forcefully demand money from drivers with a threat to attack them if they fail to accede to their demand, a Punch investigation says.

The newspaper said that one of its correspondents who passed through Ojota at 9am on Monday witnessed moments a dark-complexioned young man in shorts and T-shirt waltzed into the side of a black Prado Jeep stuck in traffic gridlock around Freedom Park.

The fellow knocked on the front windscreen and vehemently asked the driver to give him money but the latter resisted. As the thug attempted to bring out a weapon, the driver, a middle-aged man, quickly handed a naira note to him. He fled into the lawn afterwards.

There was a cluster of policemen and their vans stationed some metres away from the spot where the incident happened, the report said.
A co-presenter of a TVC programme, Your View, Tope Mark-Odigie, also shared her encounter with two traffic robbers on Alapere Bridge, inward Ojota around 7pm last Friday.

Recounting her experience during the Monday edition of the programme, Mark-Odigie said one of the assailants shattered her windscreen as she struggled to evade the attack.

She stated that two days before the incident, a friend had told her of how he was robbed in traffic between Oworonshoki and Ogudu and his windscreen broken.

She recalled, “On Friday (November 12), I had an event on the Island. On my way back around 7.30pm, the attack took place on Alapere Bridge inward 7up. Because I am conscious of the fact they usually rob (in that area), I had been looking around and saw policemen stationed around the bridge. They always park (their patrol vans) there. They clustered around a young man on the floor; maybe they caught one of the robbers.

“Barely two minutes afterwards, I was flanked by two men and they were hitting the windows. I swerved to one side and one of them ran away. I got to another lane and the other guy on my side kept hitting until he broke the glass. I kept on struggling in traffic because there wasn’t much space to manoeuvre.
“There was a trailer by my side; I kept manoeuvring until I was able to escape. I think other drivers were aware of what was going on and the little they could do was to make room for me to move. There were glass shards on my body.”

She and her co-presenters urged the state government to light up the road and other highways, especially those notorious for traffic robbery.

Another presenter, Mariam Longe, also lamented that she and her husband had been robbed along Apogbon Bridge on different occasions.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the command was addressing the menace by intensifying security across the state and raiding criminal hideouts.

He said, “Security has been beefed up in the area (Ojota) and other parts of the state. The Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has directed all the Area Commanders, DPOs, tactical teams and other field commanders to provide watertight security in every part of the state before, during and after the Christmas and beyond.”

“In compliance with the directive, the officers have increased the presence of policemen through proactive and visibility policing as well as raids of criminal hideouts.”

Look at this bigot. Admit it, your people are very lazy and that is why the resort to robbery. All those agbero, alaye and those uncountable touts are 95% Yoruba. Every region has their own vices, but trying to blame others for what happens in Lagos is low. Talking about mega cities, you go dey there dey boast of city, while people are actually making serious money in it. Lagos was built with resources from all over Nigeria, and if you advocate for the so called 1 Nigeria, then you must learn to accommodate everyone, even if e dey choke you. Though in Kwara, but lets take the Offa Bank robbery of 2018 for example, see names.......,Ayoade Akinnibosun, Ibikunle Ogunleye, Adeola Abraham, Azeez Salawu, and Niyi Ogundiran....., non Yoruba people abi?, ODE !

As a matter of fact, its even Yoruba people that export robbery to some other parts of Nigeria. For example, the insecurity on the Benin - Lagos expressway, and Benin bypass as well as to some extent towards Asaba is as a result of the combined efforts of Yoruba and Fulani robbers, with a sprinkle of Edo flavor.

They are not Yoruba, but they bear Yoruba names lol ( I guess that's what you wanted to write, but not what you wrote though )..., I shouldn't be arguing with you. I now know your level of mentality. Professor, abeg start by making sure that your English is good. Federal Capital Territory built with cocoa money from Ekiti and Ondo (Alone ), clap for yourself, the historian of our time. Make sure that you invest from the peanuts that you are making in diaspora because men are hitting it big in Naija on a daily, you can't measure up.

Of course, that will be nice. If The country can be divided peacefully, it will definitely be''to your tents O'Israel''. The reason why some people are in Yoruba land is same reason why Yoruba people are in other parts of the country, and that is the 1 Nigeria deception. Divide the country, so that my people will come back, and your people will go back home too. But I guess that your people might not like that idea because some of them own undeserved oil wells in the SS and SE.

Now you're sounding weird. Still searching to see the sense in what you said. All criminals in Yorubaland are either foreigners or half Yoruba, while full fledged Yoruba people are saints. I see. Anyway, since you are in the states, help us ask Hushpuppi if he is half or full fledged.

You are living in a perfect Yoruba world,  created in your mind. Like I said, it is good that they divide the country and that everyone goes back to their place, including Yoruba people living in other parts of Nigeria. Imagine you, thinking in your little mind that it is only others that come to Yoruba land and that Yoruba people are not in other places, because that is what you imply !. For the records, Yoruba people are the worst criminals that we have in Nigeria, they are into armed robbery, fraud, rituals and every bad thing that you can think of. And if you decide to name them half Yoruba, because you are shy to say the truth, then count all the criminals out, and you wont even have up to 19 people remaining in the entire Yorubaland. Other tribes live in Lagos, Abuja, and all cities in Nigeria, so if the country should be divided, everybody will go back to their place, and build it. Lagos is not the only megacity in Nigeria, let alone the world, so if the country is divided, others will still go and build themselves, brand new and better mega cities. Everyone is managing Lagos at the moment because of 1 Nigeria. Stop dragging Lagos, no be your property. I don't stay in Nigeria either, but trust me, you wont be qualified to be the gate man of some people that live in Nigeria. Lastly, you will be surprised at the population of Yoruba prostitues in and out of Nigeria when you actually check. Tell your mind to stop it and face reality.
