Graphic: Motorists stabbed by traffic robbers in Oshodi

Some motorists fell victim to armed traffic robbers  on Oshodi expressway last night .A relative of one of the victims identified as Toju Uwatse,narrated the sad story below

My Cousin Toju Uwatse was attacked on the Oshodi express way by robbers who took advantage of the heavy traffic jam caused by the lagos marathon.

He and a friend were stabbed several times and their vehicle smashed. The robbers believed they had just arrived from the Murtala International Airport and thought the vehicle would be carrying suitcases loaded with goodies from abroad.

He tried to get the attention of a vehicle with diplomatic registration plates so the police officers and security operatives will come to his aid but to no avail.

He had to fight for his dear life defending his face and chest while being punched and stabbed on his arms.

It was a 17minute battle untill the robbers made away with valubles such as laptops, phones, jewellery and other expensive items. It was sad as there was no way for him to escape as the traffic was a stand still for hours.

Several other vehicles were robbed. The criminals had a field day. Mr. Toju is currently receiving treatment in hospital he is in total shock and can’t wait to leave to overcome the incident.
