The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority on Tuesday arrested two suspected ‘one chance’ robbers and rescued a female victim.

The General Manager of LASTMA, Mr. Bolaji Oreagba, in a statement said, “Our officers on patrol and with the help from passersby chased and apprehended a Toyota Corolla saloon car (FST 60 RJ) after a lady at the back seat was heard shouting ‘kidnappers’ right after the bridge going towards Yaba from Jibowu.

“The driver with the lady in the front seat was immediately apprehended while the victim quickly got down from the car. She explained that immediately she joined the car from Maryland going to Apapa, a lady beside the driver collected her phone with other valuables and she shouted after noticing that they were ‘one-chance’ kidnappers robbing them of their valuables before discharging them at any location of their choice.

“They were both handed over to the Sabo Divisional Police Station by LASTMA officers for further investigations.”

The General Manager then cautioned members of the public to be extra vigilant and extra careful when boarding private or commercial buses.
