Police Intercepts Robbery Attempt on BRT Buses

Operatives of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS), recently, prevented an attempted attack and robbery on passengers of the popular 22 seater BRT buses.

An accident had occurred earlier involving a BRT bus and a motorcyclist, at Cement Bus-Stop along Lagos-Abeokuta expressway when a group of commercial motorcyclist tried to attack the BRT Bus and passengers.

However, the Commissioner of Police had ordered the RRS Commander, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, to lead the enforcement team to the accident scene where he discovered that a commercial motorcyclist, who lost control while using the BRT corridor, was crushed to death by an oncoming BRT bus which resulted to attacks by some motorcyclists and miscreants on all BRT buses and passengers in the area.

The RRS enforcement team was able to restore order and escorted the 22 BRT buses safely back to Oshodi terminal. The Commissioner of Police decried the flagrant disobedience of traffic rules by Okada Riders and motorists in the state especially plying the BRT corridors with impunity. He emphasised that such is unacceptable.

The police boss however directed that the hoodlums that orchestrated the attacks on BRT buses and brouhaha at cement area in Wednesday 10th March, 2021, be apprehended and made to face the wrath of the law as the command will not tolerate any act of lawlessness in any part of the state.
