The convoy of the Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode fortunately saved several motorists from being attacked by a gang of armed robbers, who struck at Long Bridge on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. The incident which took place last Thursday at about 8 pm was said to have been carried out by armed robbers who were dressed as Police officers.
According to an eyewitness, the notorious robbers had blocked the expressway forcing motorists to stop which gave them the opportunity to carry out their dangerous act of robbing innocent motorists.
However, luck ran out on the robbers when the convoy of Gov. Ambode, was returning from Osun State where Ambode had attended the President Buhari’s visit, realized that the police officers were fake and were in fact robbing people. The Governor's entourage engaged the robbers in a gun fight.
A source at the governor’s office confirmed that they saved motorists from being robbed by the crooks.
