Sanwo-Olu Nabs Gang Of Traffic Robbers In Act At Ojota by Omooba77: 10:14pm On Jul 12
A gang of suspected criminals who specialises in attacking motorists and road users in traffic met their Waterloo, when Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday morning, personally arrested them at Ojota area of the state while in the act.

Taking the war against criminality in Lagos a notch higher, and walking the talk, Sanwo-Olu, apprehended the suspects while attempting to rob a motorist around Ojota in-bound Alausa.

Help however came the way of the helpless motorist as the passing by convoy of the Governor, intercepted the robbery act, rescuing the victim from the three machete-wielding criminals who were at the time, trying to forcefully drag him out of his vehicle.


The security personnel attached to the governor immediately, swooped on the suspects on the order of Sanwo-Olu, and retrieved the dangerous weapons from them, arresting the three of them in the process.

Sanwo-Olu who stated after the arrest of the suspect that the exercise was a strong warning signal to other criminal elements and prospective traffic robbers in Lagos that there is no hiding place for them and their likes in the state.

Recall that Governor Sanwo-Olu, while handing over security equipment purchased by the Lagos State Security Trust Fund, LSSTF, to the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, for the use of Lagos Police Command, on Thursday June 10, assured residents that there would be no hiding place for criminals in the State.



His words: “We are determined to stabilise the security situation in Lagos State, as our own contribution towards lasting national security.

“Let me also use this opportunity to sound a note of warning to all criminals who are operating in Lagos State or planning to operate here; all armed robbers, kidnappers, cultists, bandits, and other criminals, we will leave no stone unturned in making this State inhospitable to you.

“We will find you, wherever you may be lurking and we will bring the full weight of the law on you.”


The brand new crime-fighting equipment donated to the Lagos State Police Command were; 150 Double Cabin Vehicles, 30 Saloon Patrol Vehicles, 1,000 Ballistic Vests; 1,000 Ballistic Helmets, 1,000 Handheld Police Radios/Walkie-Talkies, 100 Security Patrol Bikes; two Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs), four High Capacity Troop Carriers and two Anti-Riot Water Cannon Vehicles.
