Several road users sustained injuries as armed robbers attacked motorists and others on Ado-Badore Road in the Ajah area of Lagos State.
The robbers reportedly attacked commuters on the road as early as 5.30am, sources say, smashing vehicles’ windscreens and robbing occupants and other road users.
Some victims of Wednesday’s predawn attack shared videos of the incident, lamenting that the Lagos State Government had neglected the security of lives and property in the Ajah area, which is notorious for traffic robbers.
A woman, Enitioluwafe, who made a video, said, “This happened on Ado road heading to Ajah this morning. Due to the traffic caused by trucks which are packed on the road, people were robbed and maimed.”
The Lagos state police command has yet to issue a statement regarding the incident.
