What!? Robber arrested trying to strangle motorist in Lagos

The Lekki Concession Company’s police patrol team on Friday foiled a car-snatching operation by a gang of armed robbers.

The robbers were attempting to snatch a Toyota Camry at gun point around the Oniru intersection of Lekki-EpeExpresssway, Lagos

The Dedicated Patrol Team, which is part of the security arm of the LCC company led by Inspector Adebisi Abraham, were said to have responded to a distress call that a gang of robbers was operating at Oniru intersection. On getting to the scene...

They reportedly met three robbers in the car of the victim, Joseph Mican, a resident of Abraham Adesanya Estate, Ajah, as they tried to strangle him with a cable.

They immediately fled as they sighted the security team but one of the suspects, Oday Francis, a resident of Igbo Efon, was arrested with the cable that would have caused Mican’s death.

The arrested robber was later handed over to the Maroko Police Division for further investigation and possible prosecution.
