Since the end of #EndSARS protest, which turned violent, robbers have displayed a kind of courage by engaging in the supremacy battle with the Nigeria Police on Lagos roads.
P.M.EXPRESS investigation revealed that traffic robbers had taken over some roads and started robbing people with impunity having realised that the attacks on Nigeria Police really demoralized the officers.
However, it appears that the officers of the Lagos Police Command are gradually regaining their confidence and decided to bring back sanity to the State.
This followed the recent arrest of traffic robbers, who have been terrorizing residents in various locations in the State and had taken over some roads.
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that Policemen attached to Morogbo and Victoria Island Divisions respectively, engaged and arrested some traffic armed robbers at various locations in the state.
He said, “On November 17, 2020, the Policemen attached to Morogbo Division, while on patrol on Badagry Expressway, engaged a gang of traffic armed robbers in a gun duel where one of the gang members fell while others fled.
The gang had earlier shot and injured a Corporal attached to the Police Border Patrol team around the area and dispossessed him of his motorcycle.
“Items recovered from the gang included a locally-made gun with some live cartridges and the Police Corporal’s snatched motorcycle” Adejobi said.
