Officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) have apprehended three notorious ‘one chance’ robbers at Abule-Egba.
This was disclosed on the official LASTMA’s X page on Thursday, January 4.
The Director of LASTMA’s Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department, Adebayo Taofiq, confirmed in a press release that LASTMA personnel apprehended the suspects along with their operational vehicle, a ‘T4’ commercial bus (APP 406 YE), at the U-turn area of Abule-Egba.
It was gathered that the robbers were being chased by members of the public after they pushed a passenger who had just been robbed off their bus.
During the chase, they drove recklessly in order to escape arrest before they were eventually caught by LASTMA officials controlling and managing traffic around the Abule-Egba axis.
The General Manager of LASTMA, Bakare Oki Olalekan however appealed to the public particularly commuters to be very vigilant and stop boarding commercial buses by the road side popularly called ‘So-le’.
