Meet the scapegoat arrested during an attempted robbery on the Long Bridge axis of the  Lagos Ibadan Expressway on Tuesday.

The suspect identified as Lucky Emmanuel is a member of a 4-man robbery gang terrorizing motorists on the robbery hot spot.

The Mile 12 resident was among the 4 robbers who attempted to dispossess stranded motorists of their belongings at gunpoint.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the  gang came out from under the bridge to rob some stranded passengers, whose bus had developed a mechanical fault around 10pm.

His words:

While the driver was trying to fix the fault, the hoodlums suddenly came out from under the bridge and held the passengers hostage at gunpoint, ordering them to surrender all in their possession.

“Luck, however, ran out on them when policemen led by the Divisional Police Officer, Warewa Division, CSP Akinade Johnson, who were on a routine patrol on the bridge, arrived the scene.

“On sighting the police team, the hoodlums took to their heels and were hotly pursued by the policemen, and one of them, Lucky Emmanuel, was subsequently arrested, while the other three escaped.

“Recovered from the arrested suspect was a locally-made double-barrelled pistol with live ammunition”
